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.

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

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

Our 'My Country' velvet collection

MyCountryRuthBluesofacloseup2.jpg

Bay Gallery Home brings you our My Country Ruth Blue, Red and Pink cotton velvet collection. As the latest edition to our award winning Aboriginal interiors collection we have chosen Aboriginal ‘Goanna Dreaming’ paintings by Ruth Nungarrayi Spencer selected on our last trip to the Central Desert communities we represent.

My Country embodies the Dreamtime stories still followed by this ancient culture for use in the every day.

One of the the four interiors surfaces (wallpapers, rugs, ceramic wall tiles and fabrics),  My Country references the Aboriginal philosophy and creative process, whereby all of creation is in relationship, at one with the land.  The original artworks'  particular provenance and symbols - inspired by mapping myths, rituals and sacred topography - results in a compelling, versatile aesthetic with a most subtle compositional depth of field, imbuing spaces with wider horizons of the imagination.

Our designers used techniques combined with high-res scanning process to accurately match every detail and color of the artists’ paintings.

The beauty and quality of our velvets reflect the origins of indigenous creative process and high-quality materials and British manufacturing skill.

We also offer a bespoke Made to Order service as well as selling the velvets by the metre.

Fabulous Aboriginal fabrics coming to Bay Gallery Home soon

Bay Gallery Home is working hard on creating 'Songlines' our first collection of fabrics based on paintings by artists we proudly represent.  We have developed the world's first Aboriginal velvets available in three colours with slightly differing depictions of the Goanna Dreaming (Warnu Jukurrpa) - essentially a love story set in the Central Desert of Australia.  In keeping with our 'design with origin' ethos we have been faithful to the original artwork in the design work thereby protecting the Dreamtime story and the intent of the artist.  Keep an eye on the website over the next month or so as beautiful tableware, blinds and cushions will be amongst our first offerings.
