This painting is of the landscape out bush the scenery is beautiful, you see buffalos, anthills, pandanus, trees and bush flowers.

Karen lives in Ngukurr with her family, she also studies at the Bachelor institute. That is where she created her first painting, Karen’s art has developed enormously in the time that she has been studying at Batchelor and she encourages other Ngukurr artists to study there. Karen has tried many new skills in the past few years, but at Ngukurr she is the resident screen printer, she creates and prints all the designs herself using mainly stencils and rollers, The eco-dyed scarves (without a print) are made using local bushes and plants to obtain the colour.

Ngukurr Arts Centre sits a stone’s throw from the banks of the Roper River in South East Arnhem Land. Ngukurr Arts, like the town of Ngukurr itself, is unique – bringing together people of many different clans and language groups.

There has never been one distinct school or style associated with Ngukurr Arts but what is typical of the work is boldness – the legacy of artists who have gone before, such as Ginger Riley, Gertie Huddlestone, Sambo Barra Barra and Maureen Thomson. Over time, Ngukurr artists have become renowned for their adventurous styles in interpreting stories and landscapes.

Today, artists are supported to explore new techniques. Each artist recontextualises the technique in relation to their own country and culture, to create works that are wholly unique.

In this place of many stones, diversity is a strength. Many artists of different influences work alongside each other balancing the old and the new, passing on the stories that link us all.
