Victor Burton


14 January –
16 March 2019

In association with Spinifex Hill Studios.

Illjampi Victor Burton was born around 1950 in the bush in the north west of Western Australia. He lived a semi-nomadic life until adulthood, only wearing clothes for the first time when he was about 19 years old.

Burton recently started painting at Spinifex Hill Studios and within a short time, has demonstrated an innate talent for painting which we believe will go from strength to strength. He paints brightly coloured scenes from his Country in a naive Western style. Despite his simplified rendering of the landscape, the care with which Burton constructs his pictures speaks volumes of his knowledge and love of his traditional Country.

We are very excited about this upcoming exhibition, which has been almost a year in the making. We'll reveal more details and images in January. If you would like to receive a preview, please contact us.
