Lorraine Connelly-Northey

I always enjoy seeing the work of Lorraine Connelly-Northey both recently at Federation Square NGV, Melbourne and at the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney. I am still very happy I have in my possession a small tin and feather bag I purchased in 2005. Connelly-Northey is of Indigenous and Irish descent and her work is often made from salvaged materials including weathered scrap metal.
