Land & Sea
Land and Sea was an exhibition of bright and colourful monoprints by a local group of First Nations artists - Karen Doolan, James Doyle, Bai Tapau, Gail Mabo and Aicey Zaro. The artists called themselves the Murris in Ink.
The artworks depicted imagery from their environment and stories told by the artist's parents and ancestors about living on Country. The work was developed after the Queensland Government commissioned work from the Murris in Ink group for the Townsville Hospital which was more focused on traditional bush foods and medicine. Theo Tremblay assisted in the printing process and Umbrella partnered with Artslink Queensland for the 2014 tour. It was then toured to two more venues in Townsville.
Touring Partner: Artslink QLD for two venues; managed by Umbrella for final three venues.
Funding Partner: VACS (Visual Arts and Craft Strategy)
The exhibition toured regional QLD 2014-2015.
