Djamarrkuli I

This print started with a photo taken down at ‘Beach Camp’, an area in Yirrkala where the houses look directly onto the ocean.

‘ The reason I chose this picture is because the djamarrkuli (children) remind me of my childhood, and how I used to play around and engage with the other djamarrkuli.

The other image I did is the diamond, the design of the Gumatj clan, which is my clan. ’

Gandhurrminy’s print captures the innocence of youth. Her bold diamond designs sits as a reminder of her heritage, her lineage and the playground, the children of her own childhood in Yirrkala. The combination of this traditional design and contemporary imagery works in harmony. The outcome is both universal and personal.

Printed as part of the Yuta Project 2012 with The Ownership Project, Sean Smith
