100% Silk Satin with Hand Rolled Edges 110 x 110cm, 12mm 2020
A limited run of silk scarves made in collaboration with
One of Twelve, an Australian organisation that showcases the work of emerging and established artists from the Asia Pacific region:
Cassaria Young Hogan’s work is a joyful chronicle of bush trips to her grandfather’s Country south west of Kalka, encompassing the sacred sites of Kunatjara in South Australia and Mamutjara over the border in Western Australia.
Young Hogan shares a mastery of vibrant colour with her grandfather, senior lawman Nyayati Stanley Young. The artist harnesses her striking colour palette to create a cast of electric characters that boldly announce themselves, jostling for attention against a black background.
The viewer is left to marvel at the neon gathering of forms, perhaps catching glimpses ofmaku(witchetty grub) andtjala(honey ants) as they are scooped up by Young Hogan and her family during a bush trip to her grandfather’s homelands.
