Ngadiku (A long time ago) Exhibition

The Koskela Gallery is pleased to present: Ngadiku, a series of works by Tiarna Herczeg. 

Ngadiku is a body of work exploring the interconnectivity of flora and fauna that resides on Kuku Yalanji Country. Featuring a collection of vibrant works on birch, Herczeg reflects upon their homelands and journey thus far as an emerging First Nations creative.  

Ngadiku – meaning, a long time ago, in Kuku Yalanji is a playful inspection of biodiversity. Herczeg has used scratchy, dry brushes and washed-out vibrant colors to highlight both the dryness and spiritual richness of Country. Herczeg works in an intuitive way, allowing the work to communicate for itself.  

“When I paint, I feel something else take hold of me and I am allowing ancestral knowledge to flow through onto the material.” - Tiarna Herczeg on their practice (interview with the Design Files)  

Tiarna Herczeg is a proud Kuku Yalanji artist with strong connections to the Darug community. Now living and working on Gadigal lands, Herczeg continues to experiment and develop their practice, exploring the intimacy of Country an all that she offers.
