Tree spirit 2020. Story: Gwanji Monks. Recording: Lisa Roberts

Australian Aboriginal artist Gwanji Monks shares insights into his creative process where sculptural forms emerge from deep relationships between people and land.

 

Story

Tree spirit:

"...I very much respond to the material itself. So as soon as this piece [Australian red cedar root] presented itself to me, I was confronted by this angel form.

My brother [Chico] just recently passed, and so this is a response to that..."

Reflections by Gwanji Monks in conversation with Lisa Roberts at Gwanji's home in The Channon, in September 2020.
