Remote Top End artist wins top honours at Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards.
Congratulations to Gunybi Ganambarr, from the remote community of Gan Gan in East Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory in winning the overall prize - the prestigious Telstra Art Award - at the 2018 Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA). Ganambarr’s work, Buyku, is a stunningly intricate etching on three-by-three metre aluminium board. It was selected as the overall winner at the 35th Telstra NATSIAA from more than 300 entries and 66 finalists.
The directions and flow of the forms in Buyku, although initially similar in design, are said to represent multiple grandfathers (Mari) from the one Dhalwangu clan. The arms come together to form a Buyku (fish trap) as seen in the ceremony performed by Yirritja ancestors. The waters from Gadarrpa (Blue Mud Bay) to Gulutji come together to form a family connection.
