Spirit in the Land

Maxx and I set off for the Penrith Regional Gallery to view the works of a touring exhibition titled 'Spirit of the Land'.

'Spirit in the Land explores the connection between eleven Australian artists, historical and contemporary, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, and their special appreciation and engagement to the spiritual ethos and power of the land.'

I especially enjoyed the artworks by Lorraine Connelly-Northy whose skill in harnessing interesting form from weathered, discarded industrial materials of yesteryear, hung beautifully as a reference to narrbongs(string bags).

Lorraine Connelly-Northey is a Waradgerie woman, who was raised along the Mallee and Riverina bush area of north-western Victoria
