In this series called Black and Blue, Grogan has appropriated Aboriginal Australian techniques to focus on the inclusion of Aboriginal art practices by non-indigenous Australians to work with the Aboriginal community on sharing techniques to bring a better understanding and appreciation of the culture as a whole.

Lucas Grogan is a Melbourne based artist who uses needlepoint, installation, painting and drawing to explore themes of isolation, inclusion and cultural collisions, through an autobiographical lens.

So many lines...

  1. and his work [with borrowed indigenous imagery] has caused some controversy here...a very interesting article published in a recent edition of Australia's Textile Fibre Forum magazine

    1. Thank you for sharing India. I will look at the article of which you speak.

    2. Beautiful work. It notes that it's the result of very talented hands.
