Artist Profile

Charlene is definitely one of the most talented, exciting third generation Indigenous artists in Australia. Born in Perth in 1977, she grew up at Warmun Community, Turkey Creek, Western Australia. She has established herself as a strong and enthusiastic artist with an enquiring mind and the ability to fulfil her highest aspirations.

Charlene started painting at an early age – the second child of the late Churchill Cann and Sade Carrington, both International Artists, her earlier paintings reflected the flowing lines and meticulous method of her mother. She was known to comment when young that she just didn’t feel “right” when trying her father’s style, but it is now very apparent that many of her paintings are leaning towards Churchill’s swirling strokes and incredible ochre blending.

Texas Downs has produced some wonderful artists, and although the subject matter of Charlene’s art is wide and varied, she admits to enjoying most of all the camping trips with her family to their home country of “Texas”, and the paintings she completes of that land, with the Dreaming stories which her “kangayi” (grandmother) Betty Carrington, her Uncle, the late Hector Jandany and her other relatives have taught her.

Undoubtedly her art has been influenced by the artists she has learnt from and painted with – Queenie McKenzie, Jack Britten who taught both Sade and then Charlene, her grandfather’s Beerbee Mungnari and Uncle Hector Jandany, Rover Thomas, George Mung Mung, her parents and many of the Senior Warmun artists. However, Charlene is taking the ochre medium into a new perspective, still with the Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) Stories of her Gija culture.

Artwork Description

Lolly Creek is to the southwest of Doomerinjji country on Texas Downs Station to the north of the new Homestead, and west of Station Creek. High hills to the North, good grazing in the middle with Lolly Creek always full of water from underground springs. This is the south western part of the station and easy to get to from Turkey Creek. Charlene’s father, the late artist and elder Churchill Cann, says that Lolly Creek was named by the stockmen after a muster when the missus from the Station forgot to pack sugar with the stockmen’s provisions. By the time they arrived back at the homestead, they all had withdrawal symptoms from lack of sugar and she gave them lollies quickly to settle them down.

NOTES: Texas Downs Station is situated between Turkey Creek (Warmun Community) and Purnululu (Bungle Bungles) in the East Kimberley. This is the artist’s family home and her father was head stockman on the Station. Texas is now an outstation for the larger Lissadell group, however the Gija people who were born and worked on the station are allowed unlimited access to this land.
