Leading Noongar/Yamatji artist Lance Chadd, who paints under his tribal name Tjyllyungoo, will launch his new exhibition Kardamorda at the Forest Heritage Centre, Dwellingup on Sunday, July 2 at the start of Naidoc Week celebrations. The exhibition will run to 4 October.
Chadd has won many awards including the Australian Council Fellowship, the BHP Acquisitive Award for excellence in the Noongar Country exhibition and Naidoc Artist of the Year. The title Kardamorda is Noongar for the Darling Range.
Chadd paints his visions of Australia’s harsh yet fragile environment in order to iterate his affinity with the land that symbolises his heritage and the essence of his own personal identity. His works are exhibited throughout the world in public and private collections including the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Berndt Museum Collection and Parliament House.
