About the Artist
“In my practice I use colour as a tool to communicate my connection to Country. Colour helps me carry feelings into the work. Colour is both objective and subjective, so it supports me in building my own individual identity as well as connecting me to my cultural identity and communities.”
Tiarna Herczeg is a kuku-yalanji artist practicing on Gadigal lands. She has spent most of her life living on Dharug country and still maintains a strong connection to the Western Sydney community. Her approach to painting is derived from a sense of urgency regarding her spiritual and cultural identity.
Living off-Country and practicing mostly inside her studio, Tiarna is guided to use the emotional and creative energy within her, which often provokes questionable memories of colourful landscapes. There is a spiritual exchange of energy between herself and the artwork. In her artistic practice, Tiarna allows herself to listen and be guided by her cultural intuition and is therefore left with a unique, sacred depiction of Country that cannot be told by anyone else.
