Karen Mills

<b>Karen Mills</b><br/><i>Untitled</i> 2016<br/>Dry pigment, natural ochres and fixative on canvas<br/>Purchased for Charles Darwin University Art Collection in 2016 CDU3057This painting is part of a series of works inspired by a road trip the artist made in 2015, across the Far North region of South Australia. With a monochromatic palette and expressionist daubing of paint, the vast and arid landscape has been reduced here to its foundational strata of rock and mineral. This timeline of geological activity can be viewed as analogous to the enduring strength and richness of Australian Indigenous culture.  

Karen Mills is a Darwin-based artist and descendant of the Balanggarra people, of the Oombulgurri and Forrest River Aboriginal reserve, in the East Kimberley, Western Australia. Her work has been included in exhibitions nationally and internationally and is held in the public collections of the National Gallery of Australia and the Parliament House Collection.
