Black Crow by Daen Sansbury-Smith

Black Crow is a metaphor for the wise watchful eye of male Aboriginal role models and their key responsibilities within the community.

Black Crow expands on Narungga and Trawoolwaway artist Daen Sansbury-Smith’s representation of Narungga and Palawa stories, art and culture. The exhibition explores transference of inherited knowledge, stories and responsibility from a father to his young children. Through ochre, charcoal and acrylic on canvas, Sansbury-Smith maps Ancestral memory and connection to country, sharing stories of pre and post-contact Aboriginal history and culture. This mapping draws upon cultural design of huge importance to Sansbury-Smith.

Sansbury-Smith is an audio engineer, content producer and visual artist. Sansbury-Smith has produced countless art works over the past 10 years as gifts and to decorate family homes, but has never pursued art as a career. Most recently, Sansbury-Smith has been exploring with collecting ochre with his children and putting his cultural knowledge onto canvas, providing a safe space for them to watch and learn.

Black Crow is our second exhibition for 2020 in our Project Gallery.

Due to our temporary COVID-19 closure, we are pleased to present Black Crow as an online exhibition.
