Internationally respected, Tasmanian Indigenous artist Lola Greeno’s award winning talent in
shell-working is magnificently displayed in this solo exhibition of 50 highly visual and textual works, each uniquely championing the traditions and culture of the Indigenous women of Tasmania’s Cape Barren and Flinders Islands. The exhibition’s overarching theme is storytelling; of the meticulous crafting of stories of cultural knowledge, natural beauty, ancient traditions, and connectedness with her island home. Also about modern issues – contemporary sculptural works that feature are part of Greeno’s response to her concerns for the environmental future of shell stringing in northern Tasmania.
