Collected

KickArts is proud to present a selection from the period between 2006 and 2013, a flourishing time for Indigenous art from Cape York Peninsula and the Torres Strait Islands.

An artist and savvy collector in her own right, Robyn Baker complements the KickArts collection with her personal, idiosyncratic choices of key Indigenous works from a similar catchment.

Between 2006 and 2013 KickArts nurtured the printmaking expertise of Indigenous artists from Cairns, Cape York Peninsula and the Torres Strait Islands. Out of this grew a collection of striking works on paper. Comprising linoprints, etchings and other hand-printed works, KickArts is proud to present a selection from that peak seven-year period.

COLLECTED celebrates the most impressive achievements of the last decade.

Looking back, a golden era of cultural expression may have peaked but a collection remains in trust for public enjoyment. KickArts adds a sprinkling of other significant works generously gifted to us by the valued artists we support.
