Chern’ee Sutton at Aboriginal Art Galleries
Featuring in Aboriginal Art Galleries in Opera Quays this month is works by Chern’ee Sutton, a 21-year-old contemporary Indigenous artist from Mt Isa in Queensland. From the Kalkadoon tribe, Sutton’s fervid, bold and vivacious approach to painting her family’s stories is simply inimitable and visually unique in colour, composition and texture. Chern’ee embodies her ancestor’s culturally sacred stories in a style that is both perceptive and optimistic; a reflection of a young Aboriginal person’s view on their identity and culture. Despite her young age Chern’ee proves anything is possible. Opera Quays, Shop 13, 2 East Circular Quay.
