‘Country in Colour – Ngurra is inspired by the Country we grew up on and the interconnectedness we share with our environment, how the country and land we live on is absorbed into our being and fibres. The colours capture the many different colours we see on country. The sky is our pathways to the next life, the yellow is the sun that shines through. The mountains are what shields us on our country. The people sit around in circles among the native foods, all in abundance out on country.’ – Leah Cummins
