Marrma dilakmala larruma gurra ngathawu - two old artists looking for food

 

The art and science of Mulkun Wirrpanda and John Wolseley - an exhibition of drawings, woodcuts, painting larrakitj and accompanying book.

 

The project began when the two artists Mulkun Wirrpanda and John Wolseley were part of Djalkiri - We are Standing on their Names - a collaborative art project at Yilpara in 2009. They spent ten day together in the remote Blue Mud Bay region in Midawarr, the harvest season, when many of the little known root foods are ripe.  Since then John Wolseley has returned to Arnhem land each season, and the two have hunted and painted the unique tropical yams and tubers in the process of preparing for a joint exhibition and publication in 2016.
