Dugulaarra/Together, is an inspiring artistic collaboration that breaks down barriers by two of the Valley’s best. Local Yaegl artist Frances Belle Parker and artist Fleur Yorston have joined forces to create this powerful project. 

The project involves each artist creating one painting each, without any communication to the other artist, then swapping works so the other artist can do whatever they want on the other’s work. It’s about challenging and exploring an artist’s creative authority. Artists very often become very comfortable and protective within their practises, they forget that experimentation and being taken out of their comfort zone can quite often lead to exciting new ways of working and creating new narratives within their work.

Frances Belle Parker Contribtion: This artwork blends artistic expression with geographical detail. I layered my signature Biirrinba (Clarence River) landscape style with an aerial map overlay, creating a unique perspective. The calming sunset hues I used evoke a sense of tranquility. While knowing this artwork would be further developed, it was crucial for me to ensure it functioned as a complete piece on its own.

Fleur Yorston Contribution: In this work i decided to literally work with Frances composition of a “ Birds eye View” and portray the birds descending down to the sacred lands of the people. Over many centuries and in various cultures, birds have been represented in art as messengers between the worlds, carrying knowledge, wisdom.
