‘Wait a while’
Roger Yambeing’s first solo exhibition, Wait a while, details what it’s like to stand in the place of someone else. To see, momentarily, through their eyes, through their lived experience, a world so close yet so far removed from one’s own.

Roger Yambeing is a First Nations Malak Malak,
Wangi Wumirri emerging artist who is non-verbal. His capacity to capture one’s imaginative attention with his vivacious presence, not with words of speech, transcends our usual levels of communication and calls for us to Wait a While in the sovereign warmth of his character.

Likewise, Roger’s art looks out into the world with a visceral presence inviting the viewer to participate in the tactile lush of its marks and gestures, to experience the deeper mystery of its healing force.
Such works as the grid-like colour field of ‘Talisman’, a work of soft pastel pigment or Yambeing’s ‘Pod’ images, organic simplicity in form and texture, that embody a fragile verve all be it in essence of the artist himself.

Three dimensional suspended sisal works also take their place in Yambeing’s Wait a While as an existential counterpoint, casting interesting shadow onto an otherwise subtle void.

A poignant synergy vibrates throughout Yambeing’s exhibition, as a melting pot of pure self-expression; zest and belonging – the stuff from which good artists are carved.
So . . . Wait a While, moved in the space of Roger Yambeing’s celebratory life, his art, his presence, his journey.
