2022 Revealed Exhibition: New and Emerging WA Aboriginal Artists

Sophia Alone

Born

Port Hedland

Lives and works

South Hedland

A proud Ngarla woman from the De-Grey area in the northwest of Western Australia, Sophia’s paintings are vivid depictions of her family, her ancestors — the Makanykarra People — and her upbringing in Port Hedland. According to Sophia, “People who are present and who have left us are well known [to] our people [and are] special in my heart and if I could, I would love to give a glimpse [of that].” Employing a rich colour palette and an expressive, gestural style, Sophia’s paintings are often portraits of her Elders, including Aunty Lena, a Kariyarra Elder and fellow Spinifex Hill artist.
