Insider Art: Autumn 2017 showcases the creative achievements of incarcerated prisoners from across Western Australia. A joint initiative of the Department of Corrective Services and Fremantle Prison, this quarterly exhibition will be on show in the old Print Shop (Fremantle Prison Gallery). These exhibitions are always diverse in style and ideas. Pieces exhibited include those from traditional Aboriginal artists with 50,000 years of culture to draw upon; those created by prisoners engaged in tertiary courses in contemporary art practice; and everything in between. Participation in the creative process offers prisoners more than simple education and recreation. The production of artworks can be an important component in their rehabilitation as it allows them space for creativity and personal development. This can help prisoners to reframe their identity in positive ways. For many, it becomes a connection to family, culture and country. Entry to the exhibition is free, and many of the works are available for purchase.
Kurun Warun's paintings of culture and environment use colours inspired by natural resources and cultural body markings. Kurun Warun continues the great Aboriginal tradition of telling stories of the people and their environment, how they lived in their country and managed its resources. Kurun Warun refers to his work as “living culture – our story”. His use of colour reflects the primary resources of the people – red, black and white are used to convey cultural body markings and structures found in nature.
