Cedric Varcoe’s vivid paintings map Ngarrindjeri lands and waters, sharing the stories of his ancestors - narratives that continue to be fundamental to Ngarrindjeri culture. With a lyrical aesthetic, these works hold profound meaning, in a sea of animated colour.

Celebrating NAIDOC Week, Cedric Varcoe’s vibrant paintings in NGARRINDJERI RUWE - together with the diverse weaving practices featured in the concurrent exhibition CONNECTED - highlight the profound cultural connections that Ngarrindjeri people have with their lands and waters, ancestors and stories, as well as each other.

Murray Bridge Regional Gallery thanks Better World Arts for their support in providing these artworks for this exhibition.
