I am a Gunditjmara, Yorta Yorta and Wemba Wemba man and multi-disciplined artist based in Shepparton, Victoria. Capturing the essence of country is everything, vividly etched in my memories as a young Gunditjmara, Yorta Yorta, and Wemba Wemba man. Its intricate tapestry unfolds as the seasons dance on the precipice of change, leaving an indelible mark on the land while its essence remains constant. Through my artistic lens, I paint the world as seen with an Aboriginal perspective, envisaging the spirits living in harmony with the people and animals. Seamlessly melding traditional and contemporary art forms, I provide a visual voice to acknowledge where we came from and moving towards a bright future. Country possesses a certain magic, an elusive quality that is capable of transforming landscapes in mere seconds. I capture that sense of place in my work—an endeavour to convey this essence, where the mystical allure of country unfolds before our eyes.”
