Sally North's 'Primal, 2024' hangs as part of 'Collection Focus: Capricornia Printmakers', a response to Gil Jamieson's 'Brahman Bulls Fighting', part of the RMOA collection.

‘Bulls have been a part of our family business for the last 20 years and the catalyst to my current arts practice. Gil Jamieson’s Brahman Bulls Fighting was a natural choice. Fighting for bulls is primal, instinctive behaviour; a natural survival response. Jamieson’s bovine and human subjects often exhibited primal behaviour, showing the basic, sometimes confronting, side of people and animal life in the bush. His vibrant abstract works, even with minimal fine detail, portray strong emotion and recognisable form, depth and light. This photogravure is a black and white photographic depiction of a primal being, portraying the bull’s presence and strength.’
