Ayuva Meenha by Teho Ropeyarn

Ayuva Meenha is the latest solo exhibition by talented Injinoo artist Teho Ropeyarn. This exhibition of selected linocut prints offers a cross-section of Ropeyarn’s work spanning the past three years, and gives insight into the different stages of Injinoo and the history of the Northern Cape York Peninsula.

Ropeyarn illustrates the history of his family and culture through works that display his talent as a carver and printer who takes risks, and pushes the medium of printmaking. The exhibition brings together well-researched, intelligent and culturally significant works. While the artworks in this exhibition are not representative of the style of art belonging to his people (the Injinoo peoples), they are an impression of developing what is blurred through a contemporary approach by using elements from body markings to ascertain imagery from his region.
