Cooee Art Leven - 17 Thurlow Street, Redfern, NSW, 2016

Bada Warrku | Late Afternoon Sun is the first of two solo exhibitions awarded as part of the 2023 Cooee Art Leven Gallery Prize. The inaugural prize went to two finalists of the prestigious 2023 Paddington Art Prize, whose finalist exhibition was hosted by Cooee Art Leven. At 82, this will be the first solo exhibition in the long painting career of Amy Loogatha Rayarriwarrtharrbayingathi Mingungurra.


"My name is Bereline and Amy Loogatha is my Mother and I would like to share three stories she’s spoken of over the years during my conversations with her."


"My mother always sits and watches the sunsets. I would be busy and she’d say to me “Come come look at the sun - look at the sky it’s so pretty,” so off I’d go to see her sunset she stands there as if memorising every color red and oranges her favorite colours. Then she’d say “I’m going to paint that”. If the sky had pink shades she’d say “It’s going to be a cold night.”


"My Mother remembers the time she and her family were removed from Country. She laughs a lot when telling this story perhaps to hide her pain. She said “We was all on that boat getting ready to sail to Mornington Island. We (her and her sister) heard Mum Phoebe (his mother) crying and then we realise that our little brother Peter was standing on the shore waving us goodbye - my sister and I we starting crying and yelling with our mothers for the people to stop and go back which they did and the whole family was happy we were together again.


For all the trauma my Mother and her people endured her memories of Family Country kept her balanced."
