Resident Artist

Lloyd Gawura Hornsby is the resident artist.

Lloyd Gawura Hornsby (born 1947) is a Koori, a descendant of the Aboriginal Yuin People of New South Wales. His interest in and talent for art began in childhood and grew throughout his adolescence. In fact, he wooed his childhood sweetheart Wendy (now his 53-year-old wife) with paintings and carvings. Lloyd never paints on location; instead, he bases his finished paintings on knowledge and observation. His work is put together using the traditional dot technique popular among northern Indigenous artists. Lloyd’s extensive knowledge of sketching and drawing is evident in the details, as is his bold use of color to complete the experience. My education is still going on at the age of 73, thanks to my discovery of Aboriginal culture and life. The passing down of stories, our history, and life experiences all contribute to the depth of my understanding. This knowledge serves as the foundation for all of my artworks.

We must understand our history; we are people of our generation. We can look back with admiration and hope to possess some of the qualities that helped us stay true to our time. We must recognize the complexities of our generation – our status and our relationships. With the approval of my community and family, it has been recognized in my art that I have shown the positive of the dreamtime and how it was for the past 60,000 years – I have endeavored to carry on the age old tradition of telling Dreamtime and Historical stories through my art, in a passive mode. My future works will reflect my journey into the future.
