Aboriginal Art As you have never seen it before

Aboriginal artist Lloyd Hornsby Gawura will exhibit works from his ‘Coming Home Exhibition’ for the first time in the Dunghutti-Ngaku Aboriginal Art Gallery Kempsey,  and it promises to show us Aboriginal art, as we have never seen it before.

Through the use of vivacious colour and a vision to be uniquely expressive, Lloyd brings his large canvases to luminous, dazzling life.  While the familiar dot that depicts Aboriginal Art is present, this work is far removed from the conventional Indigenous style and challenges the viewer to re-think pre-conceived notions.

Although Lloyd has felt the creative urge since he was a teenager, it is only now in his mature years that he has had the chance to explore and express his talent, and already interest in his bold and visionary paintings is coming from corporate and private sectors both here and overseas.
