Brad Turner's Nungalgiri Guttara Collection: A Tribute to Ancestral Wisdom 🐚

In the heart of the Yugambeh language group, 'Nungalgiri' means 'Summer,' a season of warmth and abundance. But for me, as an Indigenous artist, 'Nungalgiri' signifies a deep connection to our ancestors and their enduring teachings. It's a story that transcends time, preserving ancient wisdom passed down for tens of thousands of years.

Within the same language, 'Guttara' means 'Coral.' Coral reefs are not just underwater wonders; they are storytellers of the oceans. Like coral, our Aboriginal Nations have upheld their sacred duty to protect and sustain our coastal communities.

My Nungalgiri Guttara Collection is a tribute to the profound bond between Aboriginal people and our ancestral lands. It's a homage to our enduring connection, a legacy that has stood the test of time. Our heritage is not only about culture but also a profound understanding of the natural world. Our knowledge has allowed us to create sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable tools that have kept our coastal communities thriving for generations.

In my art, you'll discover a deep reverence for these ancestral teachings. Each brushstroke, each hue, embodies the spirit of preservation and respect for nature's delicate balance.

Embrace the warmth of 'Nungalgiri' and listen closely to the whispers of 'Guttara.' My Nungalgiri Guttara Collection is a celebration of resilience, responsibility, and a profound connection to the land and sea. It's a testament to the enduring spirit of Australia's indigenous people, and a reminder of the wisdom that we must cherish and protect for generations to come.

Colour Palette: Peach, White,Umber, Lilac, Red and Yellow
