From Annandale Galleries:
Spiral Wind is the title we have given to the group show of artists from Maningrida to accompany the solo exhibition of Samuel Namunjdja. The title does not refer so much to the content of the works that are rich and varied in the stories they depict, but rather as a metaphor for the explosive innovation and variation to emerge in Maningrida over the last few years. Artists include senior Kuninjku figures John Mawurndjul, Ivan Namirrki, Owen Yalandja, Timothy Walanjbirr, Kay Lindjuwanga and James Iyuna as well as younger artists who have already made their mark such as Irenie Ngalinba, Samson Bonson, Joy Garlbin, Aileena Lamanga and Elysse Cameron. Most of these artists were also featured in the critically acclaimed and commercially successful exhibition of Kuninjku art staged in London by Josh Lilley Fine Art in association with Maningrida Arts and Culture and Annandale Galleries in September 2007. Also in ˜Spirit in Variation’ parts one & two (catalogue available) at Annandale in late 2007 and early 2008. Magnificent works have been carefully chosen over the last year to demonstrate the continual innovation of this group of artists as well as the consolidation of their position as one of the most exciting contemporary art movements in Australia.
