How Artworks Are Sent

Ochre / Kimberley artworks are shipped on canvas or linen, already stretched, ready to hang unless stated otherwise.

Acrylic artworks are shipped on canvas or linen un-stretched, rolled up in a cardboard tube unless stated otherwise.

These artworks will need to be stretched on a stretcher board before hanging.

This can be done by nearly any picture framer (highly recommended) or you can DIY if you’re confident in your handiwork.

There are numerous "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to achieve this.

Artist Profile

Rusty Peters was born on Springvale Station, East Kimberley, Western Australia in 1935.  He grew up and worked as a stockman on Springvale, which is the content of many of his works.  The family relocated to Mabel Downs Station after his father was lost in a riding accident, and Rusty continued as a stockman and valued horse-breaker.  The family then moved to the fledgling Turkey Creek Community (now Warmun) where Rusty took his place with the Kitja Elders in passing on the culture to the young boys.  He worked with Hector Jandany and George Mung Mung who along with Jack Britten and Paddy Jampinji were to become the First Generation Ochre artists, all of whom are now deceased.

In 1989 he moved to Kununurra and worked at Waringarri Aboriginal Art Centre, the first in the East Kimberley area.  He assisted artists, in particular Rover Thomas (dcsd.) and learned the many facets of the art trade whilst painting infrequently.  He participated in printmaking workshops with Waringarri. He commenced painting seriously in 1997 with Freddie Timms and Paddy Bedford.  His intimate knowledge of the country from his station background and the associated Dreaming Stories now form the basis of his very distinctive works, depicting a sparse mapping style and grass routes ‘bones of the earth’ iconography.

Rusty has the most interesting face, weathered by the rugged Kimberley conditions and perhaps by life itself.  The very well known artist Nicholas Harding who has been an Archibald finalist every year since 1994 and won the Archibald Prize in 2001 with a painting of actor John Bell, in 2002 and 2004 submitted portraits of Rusty for this prestigious Award.

His dry sense of humour and casual style of speaking is legendary – in 2005 whilst attending an Exhibition at Parliament House in Canberra, in reply to political remarks such as “(Aboriginal Art) is our most profound, significant and important cultural export. I don’t think there’s any question about that” Rusty merely commented “I’m just proud of what we’ve done”.

Rusty Peters is an established high profile International Artist, with works in major Collections and Museums around the world.

Artwork Description

Two kangaroos long time ago were digging all around for that Sugarbag – wild honey you know. All that black part in the painting is where they were digging. Well, they started to fight over that bush honey. The Grey kangaroo said to that big Red kangaroo “give me some – you’ve got plenty of that honey” and the Red kangaroo said he didn’t have any. Well, they went on and on arguing and fighting and all – biggest fight between them. The white down there is where the sugarbag was – they couldn’t find it. In the end, the Red kangaroo decided to go away and live in those top hills, and the Grey ‘roo stayed down on the plains. And that’s how come now different people live in different places and speak different languages, like the countries in Europe you know. And like, say, how the Chinese speak a different language to us Australians. Well, that’s the story of the different languages and skin colours
