Cross-Currents: from island to mainland
Gold Coast City Gallery 9 September to 5 November, 2017 Queensland
South Stradbroke Island was the setting for an Indigenous artist camp mentored by Judy Watson focused on sharing strong connections to country and exploring new skills. ‘Cross-Currents’ displays work this unique journey inspired with many artists expanding their ‘go-to’ approaches with fishnets, ochre, new symbols, shaping branches or inventing forms which refract the native landscape; new works from Claire Agale, Glenn Barry, Glennys Briggs, Libby Harward, Alicia Jones, Kiana Larkins, Bryce Moran, Lisa Sorbie Martin, Jason Murphy, Dylan Sarra and Neville Torrisheba.
