My name is Charmaine Davis and I’m an emerging artist who was born in Grafton NSW, and now live/work in Brisbane. I’m of Bundjalung and Gumbaynggirr descent.
My art connects me to my culture, heritage and land, and to the past, present and future. Knowing the history of place is very important and one hopes to convey these stories in my artwork.
I paint landscapes in acrylic and recently is exploring 3D mediums. My subject matter is the family homelands and connection to my Aboriginal heritage.
The work represent landscapes of Northern New South Wales which I have traversed, and my connection to place. Highlighting the spritual connection as well as history.
Our relationships with country, family, identity and community. Connection to place. Place sustains us spiritually.
The landscape speaks quietly to you and draws you in.
