Brewarrina #1


I want future generations to understand their birthright and learn their cultural history. Stories about Baiamee are central to the kinship of the Baranbinja and Ngemba tribes of the Brewarrina region of New South Wales. I had always wondered about the truth of my Country, given the years of cultural damage associated with this land. I’m so relieved to discover much of the history has been preserved for future generations and now, as an Elder, I want to share my Dreamtime. Baiamee is responsible for all things related to this Country. He created our fish traps and gave life to the rivers, to the sea and to all the seeds of life. It is my responsibility as an Elder and artist to continue the practice of storytelling. Stories about the creation of life, about animals, hunting journeys and travelling across Country are the stories our children (jarjams, boori) will learn and carry on in the tradition of our people. This is my journey, this is my story.

More information

What is artwork stretching?
Your stretched and ready to hang painting will come complete with D-rings, hanging wire, and a small artwork label affixed to the back.

Why can’t I select unstretched canvas?
Some of our paintings are painted close to the edge of the canvas, and don’t have a border wide enough for standard stretching. These artworks will be ‘strip-lined’ with a quality cotton edging. As this is a boutique process, these paintings must be stretched by The Torch and are not available to be shipped as unstretched artworks.

Some paintings may also be unavailable unstretched because they have already been stretched for use in exhibitions.

How much will the artist receive?
100% of the artwork price, set before the stretching and delivery costs are added, is paid directly to the artist.
