PAST EVENT - Ricky Emmerton: Who Flash!

Presented by Townsville City Galleries


Ricky Emmerton is a Kalkatungu man living in Townsville. Emmerton has commenced a Doctor of Philosophy (Creative Arts) at James Cook University.

WHO FLASH! will preview new paintings from his university research which asserts that Kuathuat Ritjinguthinha (Rainbow Serpent Dreaming) is a living tradition that maintains our culture and identity. ‘Flash’, in Indigenous art, is in the form of bright colours, dots and patterns.

Emmerton’s paintings reflect experimentation into new and expressive forms of ‘flash’ colours and composition. Inspired from Kalkatungu rock art, historical documents and artists within our family, WHO FLASH! will demonstrate a continuance of Kalkatungu culture through art.
