For the Noongar people of South-western Australia the word boodja means “land” or “home.” This exhibition features paintings by three Noongar artists “ Athol Farmer, Troy Bennell, and Graham Taylor “ inspired by drawings of the Stolen Generation of Aboriginal children who were incarcerated at the Carrolup Native Settlement in Katanning in Western Austrialia. In wirks reflecting the Carollup Style that had developed at the Carrolup Settlement, these artists explore the complex relationship between Noongar culture, landscape, and history.
