21 April 2023 - 28 May 2023
This exhibition presents new work by emerging Girramay artist Erica Muriata. She grew up in the Jumbun Aboriginal Community of the Murray Upper area, North-West of Cardwell, Queensland.
Erica’s practice incorporates painting, ceramic Bagus and weaving. Her painted landscape scenes in warm, earthy tones reflect her identity and her relationships to her family. Erica has strong family ties to the Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre. Her Father, Jack Muriata, was a respected Elder and leader in the community. Her Mother, Lillian Muriata, is an established painter. Erica’s personal memories and cultural knowledge strongly influence her art. Her designs embody her identity and ancestors. They share the stories in which she is the keeper.
