Join artists Lisa Waup and Dominic White from Baluk Arts, an urban Aboriginal Arts Centre based in Mornington and hear them in conversation about their works on display at Linden New Art.

Lisa Waup and Dominic White have created significant bodies of work that are presented under the titles carry me softly and Above, Below, Skin, Water. Also on display are the works of six selected artists from Baluk Arts, under the title Elements, curated by Lisa Waup. The works explore the concepts of the vessel, places of belonging, loss and memory. Including sculpture, prints and textiles, the fragility and strength of our planet is represented through the use of five fundamental elements of nature – Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Wood and Metal.

This event is presented as part of ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019.

Lisa Waup received a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art from RMIT University, and developed an affinity with Melanesian culture through her experience of living in Papua New Guinea. Lisa’s work is usually made of many layers or pieces that symbolise layers of history and story, and her s􏰀tching symbolises rea􏰁aching the fragments. Lisa works with paper, three dimension works, and has developed a dis􏰀nc􏰀ve weaving prac􏰀ce. Lisa is an ar􏰀st, and curator and has been working at Baluk Arts since 2012 as a Program Coordinator. Lisa is a descendant from the Gunditjmara and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


Dominic White’s Indigenous connec􏰀on is through his birth mothers line linking with the Pyemmairrener people in Tasmania. Dominic was adopted early in life and his artwork is an explora􏰀on of the lost parts of his heritage crea􏰀ng an iden􏰀ty deepened in the understanding of self. His artwork explores themes of landscape and peoples interac􏰀on with place, family, gene􏰀cs and biology.
