In the exhibition Big Storm Between Two Places (2014), Michael Nelson Jagamara's and Imants Tillers' most recent collaboration, The Messenger - a 64 panel square format work - was shown alongside a significant earlier work by Imants, After Civilisation (For Geoff Bardon), 1986. This work was first exhibited in the1990 Balance exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane. The pivotal imagery, within both paintings, is the formative iconography of MNJ’s original design selected for the forecourt mosaic of New Parliament House in Canberra. Both paintings also reference the classical symbolism of Giorgio de Chirico, a counterpoint for both artists in a recent group exhibition Dreamings: Australian Aboriginal Art Meets De Chirico at the Museo Carlo Boletti in Rome (2014). Other recently completed works, Another Path I-IV, each comprise of two canvas boards depicting concise imagery and text. Nature speaks DU/Nine Shots and Nature speaks DV/Yala dreaming (both from The Loaded Ground) are more complex works, each made up of sixteen canvas boards.
