Emerging from the rainforest canopy of north Queensland and a culture of spanning countless generations, the work of Girringun artists is attracting a lot of attention. The stories and environments of this ancient culture are being transformed into visual images and designs by weavers, painters, potters, textile artists and makers of traditional objects. A continuing close connection to place and honouring of indigenous lore and culture provides inspiration for this work which embraces traditional and contemporary concepts.
