Hello, my name is Arkeria Rose Armstrong and I am an Indigenous Artist and a Gamilaraay woman from NSW. Gabirra is the name of a waterlily in Gamilaraay language. My Grandmother named me Lily Rose as a child after the waterlily. It symbolises my place on this earth and how each living thing has place to flourish. I invite you to come and join me in a presentation that looks more closely into the themes of my current exhibition. The focus of my discussion will be my identity as an Aboriginal artist and the influences of my artwork. Woman's stories looking closely at water dreaming where my name comes from and how the ability to paint gives me connection to country. Hope to see you soon in the Aboriginal Art Gallery Rotterdam.
