Bay Gallery Home is busy preparing to display our ‘My Country’ Aboriginal interiors collection in Australia at the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair where you’ll find on one of the outdoor stands.

The Australian launch of ‘My Country’ is the culmination of many hours of work, travel across the world and bumping down dusty roads to our Central Desert Communities. Sourcing the artwork and translating them into wallpapers, fabrics, tiles and rugs has been a absolute pleasure and privilege. As has working with British manufacturers on this pioneering collection.

Taking it home is incredibly exciting so we hope to see you at DAAF. If you can’t make it to Darwin and are interested in the ‘My Country’ collection please get in touch with alexandra@baygalleryhome.com

We wil be Sydney 5-8 August.

Rosie: our featured artist at work

Rosie Ngwarraye Ross painting Sugar Dreaming

Rosie Ngwarraye Ross painting Sugar Dreaming

Rosie Ngwarraye Ross, one of our favourite Central Desert artists, painting in the art centre with fellow artists on what’s bound to be a hot day but they like to stay rugged up when it’s anything less than 40 degrees!

Rosie uses a bold palette to capture her love of the wild desert flowers and bush medicine plants found across her Country.

The omission of the sky in many of this groups compositions allows you to scan the landscape without any focal point thereby drawing your eye across the painting - in no particular order. It is when looking at these works, sometimes for the umpteenth time, we find something new. Almost like it’s secret.

We have a new Rosie in stock which will share with you in a blog early next week. Keep an eye out for it when it’s uploaded for sale on the website. It reminds us of a Monet…

Bush Onion cotton velvet has arrived!

Bay Gallery Home is happy to share that our long awaited for Bush Onion cotton velvet has made it to our showroom.

The journey to get this velvet made encompasses ten’s of thousands of years, trips across the world, hours travelling to and from the artist Sarah Napurrurla and a lot of time finding designers with the skill to translate the Aboriginal paintings into repeat designs for velvets. Our designers have put their all into making our velvet range technically and aesthetically fabulous. It is another groundbreaking achievement for those collaborating with Bay Gallery Home helping make our vision reality.

Bush Onion cotton velvet is available by the metre. It is not online just yet so if you’d like to place an order or request a sample please contact alexandra@baygalleryhome.com

The Desert is a Botanical Garden

View of Country - Margaret Kemarre Ross, Acrylic on Linen 61x51cm

View of Country - Margaret Kemarre Ross, Acrylic on Linen 61x51cm

This painting reminds us of the the colours you find in a Van Gogh - the glorious yellows in the still life works “Sunflowers” and the colour of “Irises”.

It is of course the Australian outback with its ever changing shades as the sun moves through the day altering the colour of the plants and rocky outcrops.

Margaret Kemarre Ross’s family have been outbush for thousands of years collecting bush medicine from their Alyawarr land. Alyawarr is a rich botanical garden for its inhabitants. Each flower serves a medicinal purpose. The little purple ones, for example, can be used for the flu as well as easing kidney pain. When mixed with water the pink ones help with sore eyes and the yellow ones are used to wash their skin.

While expressing her passion for bush medicines paintings also serves to communicate her love of Country as it “keeps culture strong”.
