The Aliens of Narm: Sunnyside up!

A new collage, mixed media, work for a small show in Bendigo. It had to have an egg reference  and I have given my Mob frying pans for heads with fried eggs cooking in them. Everyday I feel like an alien in my own land so I wanted to make the Mob strange and ‘colonised’ as they have adapted to the cooking tools in a big way. Why not make us surreal, as either way we are treated as outsiders in our Country….

About me and my art practice. June 2017. 

Peter Waples Crow is a Ngarigo queer artist who has been featured on the ABC and in the mainstream and arts press. He lives in Melbourne where his current exhibition “Dirty Dingo” is on show in Degraves subway. He has been a multiple finalist for the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards, the Victorian indigenous Art award, and received the Koori Heritage Trust Acquisition Award. In addition to a successful solo career, Peter is notable for his collaborations with other artists; performing with Anna Leibzeit and Kaz Adams as post-punk apocalyptic disco group The Treaters since 2012. Recently he has undertaken collaborative works with non-Aboriginal artists, including Katie Jacobs and Ingrid Tufts for Dingo Spirit, which was a finalist in the 2017 Craft Victoria Awards. More recently his collaboration with Megan Evans has produced an exhibition Squatters and Savages, currently running at the Ballarat Regional Art Gallery. 

Here are some new mixed media works on paper that I have been working on. They speak to Indigenous interconnectedness and the lived experience as I journey through this life of mine. Enjoy x

Squatters and Savages

The opening of this show with Megan Evans took place on June 3 and it was really well attended. There is an amazing catalogue to go with the show and the feedback I have received has been overwhelmingly positive. Megan and I have created a powerful show that explores both sides of Australia’s colonial history. Together our work creates an interesting dialogue. We bounce of each other. I’m very proud of this show so if you are in the Ballarat area, please drop into the Ballarat Art gallery for a look. It runs until mid July 2017.
