This prize was won by Peter Mungkuri. It is a wonderfully simple but complex drawing with ink on paper. I’m especially invested in this as it depicts the local countryside of the APY lands in Northern South Australia where we are going to be working for the next three months. Peter works out of Iwantja Arts which will be just across the road from the clinic where we will work.
The drawings shows a good sample of the range of marks that are possible with simple media of ink.
Curvy and straight, sharp and fuzzy, big and small. All types of marks interact to produce a complex and evocative whole.
I was asked not to take photos at the exhibition so these images have been taken from the exhibition catalogue.
