Artist Profile

Mark was born in Derby in 1968. He resides in Turkey Creek and is the former Chairperson of Warmun Art Centre. He is a wonderful ambassador for his Community and the traditional ochre art of the area. Mark is well educated and an incredibly talented Traditional ochre artist. His charcoal sketches and figurative acrylic works are testimony of his ability in any sphere / medium of artworks.

He has been taught the stories of his land by his mother, artist Nancy Nodea, and paints her country, Texas Downs, and his father’s country around Cherabun Station. Mark’s father is Hanson Boxer, a Walmajarrie man, and this enables Mark to extend his content to embrace both Kitja land and his father’s country around Yakanarra (an excision of Go Go Station via Fitzroy Crossing) and Cherabun Station. His minimal and sometimes flamboyant style gives him scope for large works. He is undoubtedly one of the most naturally talented Australian artists.

Mark’s design won the 2002 Royal Australian Mint International Award for Pure Silver Collector Coin. The Royal Australian Mint has only released ten such coins since 1983. He has participated in Group Exhibitions and his first Solo in September 2003 at the prestigious Alison Kelly Gallery in Melbourne was a sell out success. In 2013, Mark beat a host of brilliant Western Australian artists to take first prize in the $20,000 Mid West Art Award for Excellence.

Artwork Description

This place is on Christmas Creek Community, Cherabun Station way. It’s north of Yakinara, my father’s country. It is a meeting place for the old people – has been since anyone can remember. All the tribes would come here and sit down, sometimes for weeks and weeks, making the Law and talking and catching up on what had been happening from a fair way away. It is still used for Men’s Law in January because there is water all year round (depicted here as the circle) and bush tucker – not bad country for desert land. This is painted in January Hot Time, with the heat of the season reflected in the country, with no grass to be seen. This is a very important place for the Walmajarrie people.
