'Lotjpa Balagamdail Ngar-Wu Galnyan ' 'To Speak with Respect, to Listen with Courage'
* Images, story and Indigenous Cultural Intellectual Property remain that of the Artist.
We were fortunate enough to commission Simone for an artwork on canvas, the broad brief being an example of how Aboriginal people experience VCAT- the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Simone is an absolute pleasure to work with, and a true professional. She considered the space where the work is intended to be displayed when choosing a colour palette, and made particular efforts to understand and set realistic timelines.
Simone not only went above and beyond to deliver our canvas (during a pandemic!) but also created a very special and intricate piece of art. “Lotjpa Balagamdail … Ngar-Wu Galnyan” “To Speak with Courage … To Listen with Respect”, is not only an example of Simone’s considerable talent, but also of her deep connection with her people and ancestors, and the words that she provided paint almost as beautiful a picture as she has created on canvas, perfectly interpreting our brief from a cultural perspective. We can’t wait to have restrictions lifted so we can put it on display for everyone to enjoy.
