In culture, we speak to the land, and the land speaks back to us. We have a relationship with the land.
Inspired by the ochre artists in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia, the artist respectfully gathers, blends and paints with the rich collection of colours found in natural ochres unearthed across the Bundjalung land around Byron, Springbrook, Mount Tamborine, and Cudgen.
The artist is interpreting the language of Country, with the colourful natural ochres from Country, paying respect to the spiritual connection of Indigenous art, body painting, ceremonies, dance, languages, stories, and songs of the various clan groups within the Bundjalung nation.
