    Fabrianne Nampitjinpa’s Bush Damper explodes on the canvas!

Fabrianne Nampitjinpa’s Bush Damper explodes on the canvas!

The extraordinary delicacy of Fabrianne Peterson Nampitjinpa’s “Wangunu” Bush Damper dreaming is seen in these working photos and final finished painting. Close up images capture just how painstakingly Fabrianne applies each individual dot onto the canvas, each time gauging its size and direction within the overall composition and all important “movement” of the piece. Note that the two tone effect is achieved by the amount of paint on the stick at any one time. Her choice of a monotone bright pink on the black canvas gives the painting a luminosity and sense of excitement and places it well and truly in the category of contemporary Aboriginal art. Working most days for up to 8 hours, the painting measuring 900 x 1500mm, took over three weeks for Fabrianne to complete.

The perfect Tingari by Ronnie Tjampitjinpa

When my colleague told me that Ronnie Tjampitjinpa was working with him, the timing was perfect for my new business artplacement.com.au to purchase a magnificent big black and white Tingari from the great man himself. The immaculate precision of this piece, painted specially at my request, will without a doubt, be a corner piece of the rental collection, as long as we can manoeuvre it’s 1900 x 1900mm frame into sometimes inaccessible client premises.

Please enjoy the progress shots, which I feel convey a real sense of calm and tranquility as Ronnie worked his way up and down the canvas.

Latest acquisition did not come quietly!

Not a huge piece, but really pulling a punch, is my latest Sally Gabori acquisition purchased from Dallas Gold’s gallery Raft Artspace in Alice Springs. Having sat on the floor in Dallas’s gallery pouring over vibrant, energetic, stunning pieces by Sally Gabori on a few occasions, this particular painting kept haunting me until I bought it.

For me it is Sally’s unabashed placement of colour, perfectly balanced by an adjudicating strip of white, somewhere in the composition. Measuring 1000 x 1500mm, I look forward to hanging it along side one of Sally’s other paintings 1500 x 2000mm in some confident client’s foyer or Boardroom!

Art in situ

Within the next couple of weeks I will be launching my new business artplacement.com.au (website coming soon)

Faced with the enviable problem of an abundance of beautiful Aboriginal art and not enough walls, our new business, artplacement.com.au caters to Australian companies wishing to avail themselves of magnificent indigenous art, without huge capital expenditure.  All the works are gallery quality, selected specifically for each space by our Interior Designer. Paintings are rotated on a regular basis or hung for longer rental periods – for a fraction of the price of purchasing art, companies get the pleasure and stimulation of living with beautiful art and the actual rental is tax deductible. Watch this space!

The image above shows how Ronnie Tjampitjinpa’s expansive Fire Dreaming, measuring 1500 x 2000mm, can transform a space from being a typical partitioned office lay-out, into an energetic, vibrant working environment. In the adjacent foyer area, Emily Pwerle’s Awelye or Body Paint hangs above the public seating area, creating an immediately welcoming ambiance for visitors and staff alike.

Until the site is up and running, please contact me via my blog to discuss how artplacement can help you with your art rental needs. If your company is based in Sydney, we offer clients a complimentary site visit by our Interior Designer as part of our service.
