Celebrating her culture Niketa Law brings Yungi – First Collection to the Gallery. Inspired, influenced and incredibly proud of the artistic component of her culture she wants to share this knowledge of her culture through her own art. Official opening 11am Saturday November 3.
Niketa explains, “Traditional stories guide my work, and as a contemporary traditional aboriginal artist I am influenced by the past and the present. Every piece I have produced has a unique story.” The Gallery will include the story line for each painting to guide the visitor through Niketa’s exploration of Aboriginal Culture and Aboriginal Art.
This, Niketa’s first Exhibition is on the country of her ancestors. Niketa, a self-taught Traditional Contemporary Aboriginal Artist is a proud Bindal/Bigambul woman from Cherbourg, Queensland.
She says “my technique is derived from my knowledge of common Aboriginal Artworks and stories witnessed in my earlier years. My paintings are a spiritual representation of my own story telling built on feelings, values, circumstances and that of stories that have been passed down over the years.”
