STA Chats with Jodie Munday about her arts practice as she prepares for her first online exhibition with Monica Bridge. 

Originally intended to be held in Crookwell Art Gallery,  the Exhibition of Contemporary Indigenous Art has been moved online.

I have been studying art and building my skills for most of my life.

My passion for Visual Arts really took hold during my high school years and since than I have completed various different forms of study and work continuing to build upon my skills and arts practice.

I began my own business Cr8ive Art in 2011.

 

My art career was put on hold for some years during this time to begin raising a young family.

Over the past 2 years I have begun to focus on building my arts business back up again and have had work featured at Gallery on Track in Goulburn NSW, entered various local art exhibitions throughout our area, and have also begun working in schools supporting students and staff in various roles including Aboriginal Education.

My chosen areas to work in include drawing using various mediums, photography, printmaking, pottery, wood burning and a new found interest in painting. Many of my works are a combination of the above resulting in mixed media forms once completed.

I love to represent nature in most of my work in various categories of animals, wildlife, flora, and a rural lifestyle, patterns that I find within different environments and using elements of my heritage of Celtic, Aboriginal and British decent.

I enjoy using visual arts as a form of expression, communication and learning. I also find art in all forms to be a very therapeutic activity and will be exploring these aspects in further detail during the coming years.

See the exhibition online here. Follow Jodie on Instagram or Facebook.

ONE LAND-MANY PEOPLE

This work is a representation of our land and our people. The Magenta background is symbolic of our rich soils and our rich history. The large waterhole in the background connects life and land to water which both need to survive and thrive.

The black and white circles in the centre of the image represent our ancestors.

Spreading out across the work are many orange circles which represent different people and different mobs. These circles are joined across many paths to each other and our ancestors.

This work tells the story that no matter how far we travel or what path we take in life we are always connected to our ancestors and we travel our journey with their knowledge, strength and guidance always by our sides and in our hearts.

HEALING POWER

This work depicts the connection between our families, communities, people and the land.

The circles are shaped as plants and leaves to show the healing power of nature in our culture. This comes from being on country, the connection our people have spiritually, emotionally and physically to the land we live upon and the healing powers of our natural food sources.

The circles overlap and intertwine to show the connection between our families and communities and the strength, identity of self, belonging, support and healing powers these connections provide amongst our people.

The colours are vibrant and strong showing the strength and courage of our different personalities and people throughout time and into the present day.

The work has no clear boundary it continues on in an evolving pattern just as our people will continue on into future generations.
