Congratulations to Hubert Pareroultja and Mervyn Rubuntja, ‘Through the veil of time’ – NATSIAA (2021)

Hubert Pareroultja and Mervyn Rubuntja win the Wandjuk Marika 3D Memorial Award (NATSIAA) with their work on silk  ‘Through the veil of time’ (2021).

Judge’s comments: ‘Hubert Pareroultja and Mervyn Rubuntja’s immersive work Through the veil of time transported the judging panel to the Central Desert, and allowed us to experience Country through the eyes of the Hermannsburg School. Traditionally small-scale watercolourists, we were excited to see the artists working collaboratively and scaling up the size of their work’.

Now in its 38th year, the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA) are considered the most exciting and prestigious art awards for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, bringing together entries from established and emerging artists, and reflecting the incredible variety of artwork being created by artists all over the country.

Through the veil of time is now on show at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT).
