In addition to the folio set of 10 large-scale silkscreens, Tjungu Palya has just launched four new etchings at Nomad Art and Randall Fine Art. Nomad’s exhibition was opened by Basil in the Holiday Inn on Darwin’s Esplanade (during the Telstra Art Awards week) on Friday 14th August at 10.00am. A big crowd of locals and visiting gallery people and collectors was in attendance for the event, which was a combined opening with the Tiwi Art Network.
This fine etching by Maringka Baker is her first and represented a technical challenge for Basil and Mats. It was finally resolved on three plates and editioned to 60.
