Beneath the Canopy: Friends of the Forest

As one of the most bio-diverse regions on Earth, the rain forests of Papua New Guinea are home to many diverse creatures.

 On April 19th Alcheringa Gallery will be filled with exotic birds in comically contorted poses by Ricky Kiang, endearing possums from Steven Jimowan, and a giant frog by Otto Timbin. Add to that a range of finial derived sculptural forms such as Sebbie Dumoi's complex, drum beating, human figure or Teddy Balangu's latest rendition of Killer Whale and Crocodile. Towering over all is Kaua Gita's Malu Board whose lacy delicate carved detail encloses a panoply of birds.

 Alcheringa Gallery is pleased to present this exhibition of new works from our 2011 Sepik River collection.

All works subject to presale
