A collection featuring the beautiful work of artist Kaylene Whiskey of Iwantja Arts.
Kaylene Whiskey lives in Indulkana Community on the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in the remote north-west of South Australia and works at Iwantja Arts. Her paintings celebrate heroic women, pop culture idols and traditional Aṉangu culture, reflecting the blended reality that is contemporary life in a remote Indigenous community of Central Australia. Her practice links the culture of her community’s elders with the experience of the younger generation who have grown up with contemporary influences.
Kaylene is one of the six female artists included into this year’s Badu Gili: Wonder Women, a free daily experience that explores First Nations stories in a spectacular six-minute projection on the Sydney Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sails.
This limited collection of jumpers, tea towels and mugs features her artworks and is a celebration of women.
