Warm desert hues and watery undertones dominate the new collection of Lena Pwerle's work in Soakages Sequel.
Soakages overlap on one another as if they do beneath the ground, creating unexpected mixes of colours and fluidity that bring an edge to Lena's artwork.
Each exhibition artwork has been chosen selectively to show off Lena Pwerle's individuality.
"Long time ago we been get kwaty water under the caves. Anaty, Tyape Antyematy...we been get them too, long time ago.
Big rock near Apungalingum; proper big one [soakage] there. We get billy can [with water] and come back. And bush potato. Near that hill at Apungalingum. Still kwaty there, under the caves in the hill."
