Rosella Namok

Born in 1979, Rosella lives and works in one of the most remote and inaccessible areas of Australia. A member of the Ungkum Aboriginal group, and the Lockhart River Art Gang, Namok's oeuvre centres on the major theme of 'Kaapay and Kuyan', the two halves of society for the Ungkum people. 'Everything is divided two ways. . . people, lands, story places, plants and animals. . . they belong one way or other way. . . it's important you know which way.' Namok paints with her fingers, a method derived from the sand drawing style taught to her by her grandmother. Painting for a broad audience, Namok offers these motifs as an introduction to the complexities and richness of her culture.
