Charmaine Davis is a Goori Woman who is descended from the Gumbaynggir and Bundjalung Nations.
Inspiration for her artistic creations are attributed to her culture, homelands and family.
Charmaine is a member of Boomalli Aboriginal Artist Co-operative (Est 1987) situated in Sydney.
Charmaine’s work has been acquired by the City of Sydney, Grafton Regional Gallery and Ipswich Art Gallery.
Charmaine's exhibition Place has representations of landscape traversed in Northern and Mid NSW. There is a spiritual connection to Country, through Ancestral links, family, identity and community.
Charmaine creates visual portals that allow the viewer to connect with her art and cultural visions.
Charmaine has always been a creative soul and as she states ‘It’s in my blood to create’.
Charmaine is compelled to tell the history of this Country through an Aboriginal lens, highlighting travesties that have occurred and are still having impact in the Contemporary world we live in.
Charmaine hopes that viewers will leave her exhibition being better informed about Aboriginal Culture and history, which can only lead to a greater understanding amongst us all.
Following on from the first ever Aboriginal Women’s exhibition at Lone Goat Gallery in 2019, Charmaine is contributing to creating a visual presence for first Nations Women.
Charmaine’s creations are held in numerous private collections across Australia and overseas.
Simplicity and powerful messages sit comfortably with each other as they are testimony to the spirit of Charmaine’s family and history.
