The Pilbara - Yinjaa-Barni Artists - Gallery1 Opens June 15, 2012 Yinjaa –Barni Artists are traditional owners from the Fortescue River region, and their paintings depict the remarkable country of the Pilbara in Western Australia’s north-west. The contrasts of the harsh environment with the hidden gorges of cool water, the seeds and flowers bursting out after rain, are moments that belong to the great Creation stories of the Marrga. This exhibition is presented in association with Yinjaa-Barni Art Centre. Edward Blitner –Stories from my Grandfather - Gallery2 Opens June 15, 2012 Edward Blitner started painting with his grandfather. He says of this time, "My grandfather would be painting on bark and we kids would sit around him and watch him grind the ochres and mix the colours. After a while he would tell us the story for that particular painting and also teach us the songs and dance for that story. When he was in a very good mood, he let us paint the sides of the bark painting. That was my start.

Only the eyes should capture you, the viewer and arrest you, so that all else just becomes a play in time and space. PSARI 2012

The work explores the concept of "Collisions".
On the surface, no identifiable difference but in our daily lives the gap is exposed.
