 Artist Profile: Australian Artist Fiona Foley - Life and Art
Fiona Foley is a contemporary Australian painter, printmaker, photographer, sculptor, installation artist, writer and community activist, whose work is greatly influenced by her Badtjala heritage and history.
She also studied with traditional indigenous artists in the communities of Arnhem Land, Ramingining and Maningrida in Australia, and the painful Badtjala memories are important in her art-making, along with the European tradition she absorbed in art school.
Artists can choose to make art which manifests this cultural heritage, but probably more often they produce such work in a natural or semi-conscious fashion, simply because it reflects who they are as individuals.
