Since the late 1980s, award-winning architect John Mainwaring has amassed an extraordinary collection of contemporary Aboriginal art by some of today’s most well known practitioners, including, among others, Eubena Nampitjin, Gloria Petyarre, Sally Gabori, Janangoo Butcher Cherel, Terry Ngamandara Wilson, Netta Loogatha, Elizabeth Nyumi Nungarrayi. Throughout his career, Mainwaring has been inspired by this collection – the patterning, geometries, abstraction, layering, structures, shading, surface textures that are so integral to many of the works.
