About this product
'Message Sticks' linen & leather Cushion designed by Regina Wilson.
Regina Wilson is a world renowned senior artist and Cultural Director Durrmu Arts. Koskela has a long standing relationship with Regina and have exhibited her work both individually and in a group show. Fun fact: You might recognise Regina's designs as we have exhibited them before!
Regina has an impressive history in the art space, exhibiting internationally in prestigious museums and is the recipient of numerous art awards. In 1973, together with her husband, Harold Wilson, Regina founded the Peppimenarti (meaning ‘large rock’) Community as a permanent settlement for the Ngan’gikurrungurr people. The location of the community is an important dreaming site for the Ngan’gikurrungurr language group and is situated amid wetlands and floodplains at the centre of the Daly River Aboriginal Reserve, 300 kilometres southwest of Darwin.
Dali Dyalgala is a special fabric range collaboration between Koskela and First Nations artists. Spanning the Tiwi Islands, Northern Rivers and Northern Territory, this project truly highlights the adaptability, breadth and depth of artistic expression in the First Nations design industry.
Dali dyalgala is a Darug phrase meaning to embrace. A fitting reflection of the coming together of six female artists across the country from various language groups and cultures. The choice to use Darug language ties the project back to Koskela as we pay respects and acknowledge our local language of the Eora people. Dali dyalgala is a gesture of reconciliation, to embrace one another and work together to make positive change.
Koskela licensed the artworks directly from the artists and art centres to develop a range of unique colourways for each. Dali dyalgala presents a new opportunity to create income streams for First Nations artists and is an exciting addition to Koskela’s fabric range.
