Lyndon Davis: Gulangoor – Good Place

Caloundra Regional Gallery and Sunshine Coast Libraries present the next exhibition for the Maroochydore Library Artspace.

An exhibition of paintings by Kabi Kabi artist Lyndon Davis.

Lyndon Davis was raised on the Sunshine Coast by his grandmother, and is very blessed to have learnt the old stories from her. Lyndon’s art represents his deep connection to country and depicts stories of this landscape’s flora and fauna and their creation stories.

Australian Aboriginal art is different all across the country. Here our art is very different from the traditional dot art from the desert regions and cross hatching styles from Northern Australia that is most commonly known as Aboriginal art.

Our traditional art here in South East Queensland was very bold geometrical and symmetrical designs, representing patterns in Nature and our coastal landscape. These designs were painted onto our shields and other timber artefacts, tools and also onto our bodies during ceremony. Lyndon celebrates these local Aboriginal styles and traditional design into all of his art works today.

Lyndon lives in a local town called Kulangoor - meaning Gulangoor – Good Place. The exhibition has taken this name as the entire Sunshine Coast is a good place to live. The local Landscape was rich in resources and provided everything Aboriginal people needed to live an optimum lifestyle.
