For him, any sense or understanding
of the landscape can only come from the landscape itself and such
understanding can best be developed in consultation with Aborigines.
But his work is not limited to landscape; his expressionist
and colourist techniques extend to other genres, like the still-life
and the nude.
He has travelled extensively through many of the remote areas
of Western Australia, studying and painting the landscape. In 1983
he travelled to Broome to produce artworks for Reading the Country
and Gularabulu . Between 1986 -1990, Krim Benterrak
travelled to and lived in the Purnululu - Bungle Bungle National
Park region, in order to gain a closer understanding of the landscape
within this area.
Krim Benterrak's works are represented in the Australian Parliament,
the Holmes à Court Collection, SGIO, Sir Charles Gardner
Hospital Collection, the Fremantle Council Art Collection and in
private collections in France, Morocco, England, United States of
America and Australia.
Krim Benterrak lives in Broome with his family.
