As part of Nomad Art’s Djalkiri: We are Standing on their Names project, Fiona Hall has spent over five weeks in the BHE studio this year. In June, and again in July-August, Fiona has worked on six extraordinary colour etchings; four of which were launched at the opening of the Djalkiri exhibition at 24Hr Art in Darwin by Tom Pauling, the Administrator of the Northern Territory, on August 12. Fiona has primarily used hard ground, tusche and bitumen resist to create her rich botanical images of the plants and insect life of East Arnhem Land. She returns in September to continue her work in Darwin with Basil and Mats.
