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…

Daisy Brown Linen reflects the Australian Outback

Two years ago Alexandra, Bay Gallery Home owner travelled to the central desert community Daisy Kemarre hails from. Alexandra on a mission to find a painting for interior designer Tom Carey who graduated as 2014 Student of the Year from the KLC School of Design.

Tom works in Arts and Crafts, Gothic, Aesthetic and High Victorian styles. On one of his projects he was using William Morris wallpapers but as the ‘My Country’ Lilly Green invoked William Morris comparisons Alexandra thought she could source a painting he could use in his room schemes. So Daisy’s painting became a wallpaper in turn becoming a fabric.

Daisy Brown fabric can be ordered as a linen or half panama. The half panama retains the vivacity of the original work. If you want to match the wallpaper it’s best use the half panama but if you’re after a more rustic feel it works beautifully on the linen.

All ‘My Country’ fabrics will be available by the metre on our shop shortly. In the meantime you can place orders with alexandra@baygalleryhome.com or call 07776 157 066.

Our Aboriginal wallpaper artists at Number 46

Two of our incredibly talented artists who are painfully shy sit outside the art centre where they gather their painting materials before disappearing to paint. On their return they saunter in, often barefoot in clothes, they choose for colour and pattern, clutching exquisite completed works depicting the bush tucker and medicine of their Country. When we visit they are intrigued as to which work we choose to sell or translate into wallpapers. The painting on the art centre wall is inspiring us to upscale the next wallpapers in the collection!

It is a huge privilege to work with these women who empower us through their tenacity, fortitude and innate talent. Funds from each wallpaper goes to them and other artists in the Community providing painting materials, healthcare, transport and schooling in both Aboriginal and Western cultures helping to bridge the gap.

The wallpapers are available from our Cotswolds gallery or online at www.baygalleryhome.com
