Nici Cumpston

Nici Cumpston I believe brings a very modern art appreciation of the land and the view that aboriginal culture has. Her work depicts the lush and the devastating affect that humans have had. Her work shows her true passion and her path of finding her cultural identity in her aboriginal roots. I personally like the work she created through a tricky shot and a mistaken print.


‘Shelter I & II’ 2011

The original photo proved to be hard to translate her idea of showing the land as security and protection. When the photo printed back to front the mirror affect was found to show the land justice of its sheltering properties. I enjoyed the fact of how out of mistakes can come great success.
