Collection: Joy Engelman


“The drylands are the interface between the known and the unknown. They stand at the edge of order and chaos. Dust particles float into the ethereal realms and glint before disappearing; a scene that transfixes my gaze and leaves me enthralled. It is to me, the closest representation of a quantum reality - but then, how does one ‘paint the moving light of the desert’.” 
With acknowledgement of the first nations owners of the lands that have inspired Joy: Wergia - Pink Lake, Adnyamathanha - Lake Frome, Barindji Nation – Murray Darling, Nagamini - Sturts Stoney Desert, 
Barkindji/Paakantyi, Mutthi Mutthi and Ngiyampaa – Lake Mungo
