Julie Blyfield

09 Sep – 03 Oct 2020

Embrace embodies contemporary jeweller Julie Blyfield’s response to visiting the Kimberley region in northeast Western Australia in May 2018, accompanied by her partner Chris Nobbs.  They stayed near the Bungle Bungles in the World Heritage-listed Purnululu National Park, the home of the Jaru and Gidja peoples, who are its Traditional Custodians.  This new body of work comes from immersing herself in this extraordinary country; driving, walking, taking hundreds of photographs from the air and on the ground, collecting plant samples, absorbing the rich colours and textures of the land.  And this physical located method goes to the heart of the project that Blyfield has now titled Embrace.
