"My Father died when I was just crawling. I did not know him. Then we were living at Madjinbardi. Then we went to Maningrida to be with family, following my mother.
My second dad brought me up at his outstation at Korlorbirrahda. His name is Tom Noytuna- you may have seen a photograph of him on an orange phone with lots of ceremonial paint on his face. Korlorbirrahda is a long way out into the Great Arnhem Plateau. He was keeping me when I was little and he showed me hunting and painting and explaining to me everything.
He gave me confidence."
All Graham Rostron works in this exhibition have been framed in Tasmanian Oak with Char (2) stain and UV Glass.
