Adrian Cameron :: Widjabul Dreaming
10 Dec 2016 - 4 Feb 2017
Bundjalung artist Adrian Cameron’s meticulous and mesmerising paintings depict local animals, spirits, sacred places and dreaming. This twenty year retrospective exhibition Widjabul Dreaming is a testament to the significance of aboriginal culture and the power of art in healing.
The ‘clever fella’ played an important part in Aboriginal culture for the Bundjalung people. He was a healer who could use his knowledge of plant life for medicinal purposes to heal people in the tribe. And he was known as the one who upheld the ‘lore’ if anyone in the tribe broke it.
The clever fella was also known for mystical and spiritual powers, which he would use to captivate people. – Adrian Cameron
