The ‘My Country’ collection of tiles, wallpapers and rugs is a true embodiment of Art in the everyday. Drawing upon the British manufacturing industry, its pioneering translations of authentic Central Australian Aboriginal artwork to interior surface and accessories are expanding the global awareness of this ancient culture. My Country references the Aboriginal philosophy and creative process, whereby all of creation is at one with the land. Its particular provenance and symbols – mapping myths, rituals and sacred topography – results in a compelling, versatile aesthetic imbuing spaces with wider horizons of the imagination. Its sophisticated visual language is composed of layers of regular irregularities of colour, geometry, repetition and scale dynamics. Following a long-standing relationship remote Central Australian territories, Bay Gallery Home specialises in licensing rights to its communities’ artworks offering a range of core products and extend a ‘made to order’ facility to designers and architects wishing to commission exclusive bespoke pieces. The artists are remunerated for the original purchase of artwork, and receive a percentage of the interiors sale. This additional source of income has direct bearing on the mobility, educational and work opportunities of marginalised communities. The core ceramic wall tile collection is from paintings depicting the Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime, their 40,000 year old creation myths that serve as practical survival and moral guides. It consists of Emu Dreaming, Bush Onion 1 and Bush Onion 2. [30 x 30 cm] The core wallpaper collection comprises three designs: Blue (Kangaroo plant and Pigweed plentiful after rain), Green (the Australian outback, bush medicine and bush tucker after bountiful rains) and Pink (the land in dry season, only the hardiest bushes and established trees are still visible). [Pattern repeat: 62.2cm, straight approx. trimmed width: 52cm, approx length: 10.05cm, area: 5.23 sq m]. The handwoven Aboriginal Dreamtime rugs are made to order.
