There are numerous "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to achieve this.
Arkeria Rose Armstrong, a vibrant young female Gamilaraay artist, was born in Ceduna, SA in 1988 to Stephanie and Robert Armstrong.
Art has always been a part of Arkeria’s life. Her mum still has her childhood drawings in boxes under her bed as well as pictures framed and displayed in their family home. Her middle name comes from her late grandmother Rose Fernando. Rose was a Gamilaraay Elder and one of the last sand painters in northern NSW and her special nickname for Arkeria was “Lilly-Rose”. She had a significant influence on Arkeria, both in her daily life and now years later in her art.
Arkeria credits her grandmother and her mother for encouraging her to develop a strong connection to culture and a strong personal identity. Women are intrinsically linked to the stories portrayed in her artwork. Women telling stories, sharing ideas and knowledge is what Arkeria has known all her life and this can be seen in her art.
From the age of 7 to 18 years Arkeria travelled and lived in outback Australia with her family due to her father’s job as a gold prospector. “Having the time to learn in quiet spaces in some of Australia’s most picturesque country was a blessing”, Arkeria says of the experience. She credits the experience with giving her the strength to be able to focus on her inner feeling so that she can express the heartache of losing her grandmother within her paintings as well as expressing her own sense of self. It is her connections and feelings of intertwined stories that can be seen within the lines, strokes and dots layered on the canvas.
Painting with acrylic allows Arkeria to use a range of colours which represents her Country, the stories and the knowledge. Her grandfather, Don Briggs, a Yorta Yorta Elder is another person who strongly influences her. Don is also an artist and he has taken on a mentoring role with her as well as supporting her to have confidence to paint “her way”. She loves how art has allowed her to express herself, and believes art is a healing force that connects past and present.
Arkeria had her first solo exhibition in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 2015 and most definitely has a bright future ahead of her. She currently resides in Bendigo, Victoria with her partner and their daughter.
Gabirra is the name of the of a waterlily in Gamilaraay language. My Grandmother named me lily rose after the water lily as a child. Balabalaa is the name my mother gave to my daughter. This painting represents both of us together. Mother and child and the importance of a name given by a grandmother.
