Stacey Davis

Stacey Davis was born in 1981 and her Country is Sandy Bore in Central Australia.  Stacey is following in her mother, Therese Davis’ footsteps. She is one of Keringke’s young emerging artists and is adapting her family’s painting with new interpretation in colour and design. Stacey works to reflect the patterns that she finds in her landscape and to layer them in ways that provide a view of her unique Arrernte perspective of the world, reflecting her world view of land, people, plants and animals as one continuous being connected by energy.

Artist statement

The artists of Keringke Arts use pattern, colour, shape and design to create vibrant paintings that depict sense of Country, culture and self. Various painters have developed this style of painting at Keringke Arts over a twenty-year period, notable for intricate detail and high colour. The shapes and designs may have features common to ancient rock art and petroglyph designs found throughout Eastern Arrernte country. Other motifs reflect sand and body painting designs. Still others may reflect the stories and songs recounting the adventures of the ancestors who first travelled across the vast land making the earth as we know it today. In its contemporary form these designs on the canvas may not be attributed to any particular thing, holding the energy and vitality of the artist’s particular creative experience.
