MY JOURNEY: Acrylic on Canvas | Lloyd Hornsby
John Mullins Memorial Art Gallery

3 June – 25 July 2017

Lloyd Gawura Hornsby is a Koori (descendant of the New South Wales Aboriginal Yuin people).  At the age of 68, his learning is continuing today through the discovery of Aboriginal culture and life. The passing down of stories and life experiences, are all adding to the richness of his understanding. Aboriginal culture is focused on recording the origins of life (Dreamtime). Lloyd has endeavoured to carry on the age-old tradition of telling Dreamtime and Historical stories through his artworks, in a passive mode. His journey into the future is reflected in his latest series of paintings, ‘Salt Water People’.
