Artist: Heather Pepperill
Heather is an Indigenous artist who has developed a geometric style over her twelve years of making art. Her experience with the isolation and constraints of the current pandemic have led her to explore a freer, more chaotic approach to creating artwork.
Coming from a long line of Katyete artists in Central Australia, Heather draws on her experience of being separated from her family and her concern for their wellbeing. The evolution of her work during COVID-19 has led to a toning down of her usually bright colour schemes, reflecting the limitations on her normal pre-pandemic exuberance.
The artworks listed below are currently showing in the Journey Exhibition.
