Koori Creation by Bronwyn Bancroft

The Work of Art

Koori Creation depicts the dreamtime of the Koori people in southern New South Wales and Victoria. The work of art is a limited edition  screen-print created and published in 1991. Her works are highly decorative and colourful and often focus on the environment.  In the late 1980s, Bronwyn was one of the founding members of the Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Cooperative. Although this is the sole representative work by Bronwyn in the University's collection,  her works can be found in many other institutions. These works, like Koori Creation, are very decorative and highly sought after.
