GABRIELLA POSSUM NUNGURRAYI
Gabriella was born in 1967 at Mt Allan in the Northern Territory. She is the
eldest daughter of the late great Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, but has emerged
from her famous father’s long shadow to become a highly regarded, internationally
recognised artist in her own right. This amazing painting, Grandmother’s Country,
depicts certain aspects of what her grandmother perceived her country to be like
by displaying myriad iconic symbols signifying people, water holes, landscape
formations and various types of bush tucker.

The Perth artist combines classically inspired imagery and everyday themes in her
latest work that explores the changeable nature between what is revered and what is
disposable. “Juxtaposing classical images and modern themes, my paintings are my
comment on transience,” says Lauren. “I want my canvases to ask questions and the
viewer to find joy in discovering unique and personal answers.”
Suburban Intrigue, Jahroc Galleries, Dec 27-Jan 17.

Like any artist, he is constantly inspired; always thinking about art and the
different ways he can deliver it to the public.
