Tulli Stevens

Child’s Journey

Tulli Stevens’ artwork evokes the child’s journey of connection and learning as they grow. Playful outgoing energy can be seen through the use of bright colours and flora. The native wattle represents the children learning and the lines in the background form the meeting places where knowledge is passed on.

Bernard Kelly-Edwards’ artwork showcases Gumgali (goanna) who features in Dreaming stories connected to areas the bypass travels through. Gumgali is central to Gumbaynggirr culture. The Gumgali Songline travels from the mountain range to the sea, impacting Country and Gumbaynggirr people. Knowledge of Gumgali Dreaming stories has been handed down through many generations at the Gumgali site along the bypass.

Coffs Coast

Bernard Kelly-Edwards’ artwork explores the form of Coffs Harbour coastline from a bird's eye view perspective. Bernard uses linework and shapes to represent Place and the patterns of Country, and how the layers of the land (Wajaar) and Gumbaynggirr connections are bound together. The artwork acknowledges the travel of Gumbaynggirr people from the mountains to the sea, from north to south and east to west. This land includes abundant resources, sacred sites, and toolmaking sites that are significant to Gumbaynggirr people. The stingray represents the journey of passing over for Gumbaynggirr people, which is a part of the cycle of generations of Gumbaynggirr ancestors and descendants.
