rover thomas

Jailhouse Creek, Rover Thomas (Joolama) , 1991.

I was lucky enough to be able to vist the South Australian Art Gallery in Adelaide last week and came across some beautiful paintings by Aboriginal artist, Rover Thomas. Rover's from the Kimberley region in Western Australia and has been painting since the '70's. There's a list of his works here if you're interested in seeing more of his magical paintings. And for anyone who's not sure where the Kimberely region is here is a map to help get you oriented:

It's definitely a remote part of Australia with an incredible, unique landscape. I hope to be able to get up there one day soon.
