Ruby and Hunter in Dulka Warngiid (Story Place)
Alcaston Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of dynamic paintings and installation by Queensland artist Claudia Moodoonuthi. Following from her exceptional exhibition Ruby and Hunter at Redland Art Gallery, Queensland earlier this year, this vibrant new body of work shares stories from the artist’s ancestral land, Kaiadilt Country of Bentinck Island in Queensland’s Gulf of Carpentaria. Inspired by the special bond Moodoonuthi has with her two dogs, Ruby and Hunter, the exhibition celebrates the Kaiadilt People’s significant and enduring relationship with dingoes. Brought to life through personal reflections on family, history and lived experience, Moodoonuthi honours the innate connection between people, place and Country. Within these works, she expresses the Island’s unique topography and vitality.
