Sonya Edney presents her 2nd solo exhibition at Japingka Gallery - Gascoyne Night Skies, stories told on starry nights.

Since her highly successful debut solo exhibition at Japingka Gallery in 2019, Sonya has revisited many of the sites from her childhood growing up in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia. One of the strongest memories is of the stories of the Milky Way and Seven Sisters told as they gazed at the luminous night skies over vast spinifex country near Mt Augustus.

Sonya distils the experience of the immensity of this vision of star-filled night skies in her paintings. The dominating stories of the Milky Way and Yalibirri, the Emu in the Sky reflect Aboriginal star knowledge that transcends Australia.
