About Nugu Guwan.
In a poignant representation and reflection of the ravaging aftermath of Australian bushfires, Belynda Waugh (Bindi), has created a collection that will serve as a vital backdrop to our Australian art landscape for generations to come.
Entitled ‘NUGU GUWAN’, (translated from Bundjalung language to ‘Black Rain’), Bindi explores the way our land lives, suffers and recovers.
About the Artist.
Bindi Waugh’s unique style is informed by her Indigenous heritage as an Iman and Bundjalung woman. Bindi’s creativity expands beyond the canvas across an array of disciplines from pottery to poetry and commercial illustration. With commissioned pieces and public works, Bindi’s work is also featured internationally in private collections in countries across Europe, the United States, South Africa, Israel as well as nationally.
Bindi’s work explores contemporary Indigenous issues and has been the recipient of highly-acclaimed awards such as Max National Indigenous Art Awards and Rio Tinto Alcan Martin Hanson Memorial Art Award.
Due to the popularity of previous openings and the current government restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we are hosting three seperate opening sessions for Nugu Guwan to ensure there is ample capacity. These events will feature canapés and drinks served canapés and drinks served L’apéritif on Saturday June 13. These are invitation only events and numbers will be strictly limited to 20 people per session, so RSVP is essential. Alternatively feel free to call or email us direct to organise a private viewing.
