Timo Hogan / Louise Allerton


Spinifex Country

Lives and works


Timo grew up in and around Spinifex Country, from Mt Margaret, Warburton to Tjuntjuntjara. He is a fluent speaker of three desert languages and is a leader amongst the younger generation of artists. After a break from painting due to cultural obligations Timo made a successful return with his 2019 work Lake Baker which was selected for the 2019 Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Awards and won the 2021 award. He recently had a hugely acclaimed solo show at Outstation Gallery. Timo now paints full time with the Spinifex Arts Project and works with Milpa as a side project.  

Louise facilitated the first community Arts project at Tjuntjuntjara in 1997 which later became the acclaimed Spinifex Arts Project. She worked as facilitator/manager from 1997 – 2012, helping artists to produce artworks on Country at important cultural sites. Louise currently lives and works as an artist in Sydney but continues a strong connection to the Spinifex people and Country, facilitating Photomedia projects such as Mara Wangkapai, funded by an Australia Council grant.
