Inspired by Lindsay Malay's Going Home Artwork
Gija man, Lindsay Malay works from the Warmun Art Centre, located 200kms outside of Kunnannura in the Kimberley, Western Australia. Warmun is renowned for its artists' use of natural ochre and pigments to denote a contemporary expression of Country and culture and its reputation is felt both nationally and internationally due to the calibre of highly successful artists in the community.
Lindsay's work is vibrant and transfixing, telling the story of Warlawoon, the Country he inherited from his Grandfather and of which his family regained traditional ownership of in 2010.
Lindsay and Melbourne based Wiradjuri woman, Denni Francisco, founder and designer of fashion label Ngali, have collaborated to translate Lindsay's art into textile designs. This exciting collaboration was established through a shared vision of celebration culture, showcasing Aboriginal centred design and instigating mutually beneficial partnerships across the country between cross-sector Aboriginal businesses.
Ngali unites skilled Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Artists who feature their work of art through painting and photography. We make an interpretation of that art into simple wear dress to make Indigenous themed clothing, silk dresses and silk scarf.
