50 x 50cm Inkjet photographic print on cotton rag with pastel by Tallara Gray

This work is an outcome of Baluk Arts’ Gumbadik (Soft Tree Fern) project which connected local Aboriginal people of diverse heritage to one of the few original natural environments of the Mornington Peninsula. Endeavour Fern Gully in Red Hill which is managed by the National Trust of Australia (Victoria), holds a rich history and cultural significance which captured the imagination of this important collective of Indigenous artists.

Tallara is a descendant of the Gudang people of Cape York.  Tallara grew up on Yugarapul country in South East Queensland, but moved to the Mornington Peninsula in 2016 and joined the Baluk Arts team as a member and arts worker.  She graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Visual Art (Fine Art) Honors in 2015.  Her work takes the form of sculpture and mixed media works, including photographic and text explorations. 

"The bumps on the tree trunk remind me of the country I grew up on. These are the names of two mountain peaks near my home in South-East Queensland. I see this as a map where the black shadow is the Queensland-New South Wales Border, and mountain peaks are everywhere."
