Washed Out: Kerry Toomey

14 Jul 2018 - 24 Jul 2018

Featuring sculptures, watercolours, and digital prints the exhibition provides a snapshot of what it is like to grow up an outsider in your own country.

I grew up on the fringes of North-Western New South Wales, as a proud Murri of the Kamilaroi nation.

Growing up I was told ancient stories from my family, about a way of life many Australians aren’t familiar with.

Utilising traditional materials like kangaroo fur, echidna quills, and emu feathers I continue my connection to culture, even as a motif of doyleys represents the complex web of colonial oppression creeping in.

Washed Out features sculptures, watercolours, and digital prints to provide a snapshot what it is like to grow up an outsider in your own country.
