Fiona Omeenyo

Ancestors and Spirits

Omeenyo draws on the ongoing cultural and ancestral narratives of her home community at Lockhart River to create images of the spirits of both living and past occupants. Fiona has developed a strongly individual style, imbued with a mythical, abstracted feeling, as if the figures are carved into the background layers of paint to meld with the landscape. She says of these ancestral stories, as told to her by her uncle, “This is a true story, this thing really happened, at Pathaco, before time.”
