Artist statement

Charles Jangala Inkamala paints significant cultural sites such as Mpulungkinya (Palm Valley), Rwetyepme (Mt Sonder) and Yapalpe (Glen Helen Gorge) in stylised detail. Charles meditates on his homelands as he paints and imbues his work with strong knowledge of and connection to country. Echoes of Namatjira are evident in Charles’s watercolour-type application of acrylic paint and his intricate line work captures the multitude of directions of the rock layers in this ancient land and conjures strong impressions of the shaping of this country.
