New exhibition celebrates young artist's cultural journey

A new exhibition has opened at the Living Arts Space to celebrate a young Dja Dja Wurrung artist’s creative journey.

Artist Daikota Nelson draws inspiration from Country and story-telling traditions for her new exhibition Journey.

Visitor Services Manager Jemma Docherty said the free exhibition was a celebration of the young artist’s work so far.

“This exhibition is a pivotal point in her artistic journey as she begins to map her own creative and cultural practice,” Ms Docherty said.

“Ms Nelson draws inspiration from her cultural heritage, natural landscapes and story-telling traditions and shows her versatility as an artist.

“She paints across multiple scales combining cultural painting techniques with contemporary colours in many ways.

“Her dual passion for creativity and Indigenous culture result in stunning artworks on canvas, murals, sneakers and other cleverly chosen applications.

“Visitors can enjoy this unique exhibition in a COVID-safe way and browse the collection, including items for sale which also feature in our online catalogue.”

Journey is open until Sunday September 12 at the Living Arts Space located in the Bendigo Visitor Centre, 51-67 Pall Mall. Open 9am to 5pm daily (except Christmas Day).
