Big Sculpture

Journey through ancestral stories with each sculpture's curve.

The Cairns Indigenous Art Fair's Big Sculpture touring exhibition is a captivating showcase, presenting the cultural talents of emerging and prominent artists. The exhibition promises an immersive visual journey through the diverse narratives woven by Indigenous artists, transcending boundaries and embracing a rich tapestry of perspectives. 

At the heart of this exhibition are large-scale commissioned works that stand as testaments to their artists' profound connection to culture, land, and heritage. Through the masterful use of modern and repurposed materials, the sculptures not only reflect artistic prowess but also echo a commitment to sustainability and innovation. 

Viewers are invited to explore a kaleidoscope of stories, each sculpture telling a unique tale deeply rooted in Queensland's cultural landscape. The juxtaposition of traditional and contemporary elements allows for a nuanced exploration of Indigenous identity and the evolution of artistic expression over time, highlighted by the resilience and creativity of Queensland's leading contemporary First Nations artists like Brian Robinson, Shirley Macnamara, Mavis Benjamin, Toby Cedar, Dr. David Jones, Alma Norman, Marlene Norman, Hans Ahwang, Ian Waldron and Rhonda Woolla. 

From the striking layering of Brian Robinson's work to the powerful narratives of country conveyed by Shirley Macnamara's piece, the Big Sculpture touring exhibition promises a thought-provoking and visually stunning experience, celebrating the richness of First Nations artistry in Queensland.
