East Gippslannd Art Gallery presents Kangaroo Tales 2017

East Gippsland Art Gallery presents Kangaroo Tales

Kangaroo Tales  is the latest collaborative artwork by local artists Frances Harrison, Lennie Hayes, Catherine Larkins and Elaine Terrick.

The exquisite line drawings featured on bark tanned kangaroo skins are by lead artist Frances Harrison whose intricate burning techniques are just too deadly!  Guided and advised by Lennie Hayes, the cultural and spiritual direction of the project has been determined and enriched by his knowledge. The beautiful grass sculpture by expert weaver Elaine Terrick brings an traditional Aboriginal technique into a contemporary realm and finally pulling it all together is the accomplished construction and upholstery of the sculptural forms by technicians Aaron and Kym Stroud-Smith.
