Rainbow Dreamtime. A Solo Exhibition by Arkie the Label
Rainbow Dreamtime is a solo exhibition by Kalkadungu woman, Arkie Barton. A multidisciplinary creative, Rainbow Dreamtime will show both textile and fine art pieces. Arkie Barton, behind Arkie the label grew up in Meanjin (Brisbane) and is largely informed by the Indigenous land on which we reside. This exhibition draws from Arkie’s Indigenous Australian heritage and stories of the Dreamtime, interpreting traditional stories in a contemporary format.
Having worked with both hand painted and digital artworks the exhibition shows hand painted acrylic canvas pieces alongside digitally rendered silk textiles. All textile pieces are digitally printed onto 100% silk, natural fibres being of most importance in the creation of Arkie’s pieces.
Join Arkie the Label on the 9th of March to celebrate and engage with contemporary Indigenous Australian culture.
