Article in the Cairns post about the artist Norman Miller.
Quoted from the article:
Norman’s mission to serve, combined with his identity as a descendant of the Jirrbal, BarBarrum and Yidinji rainforest peoples of the Atherton Tableland, are reflected in his paintings.
When I paint, I use the side of me that has the traditional name of Munganbana, he says. It means Mountain Water in Jirrbal. I paint personal journeys and the beauty and landscapes around me.In lino prints, acrylic paintings and batik fabrics, Norman depicts aspects of family and home, plus a love of rivers, rainforests, seascapes and wildlife, the geographical elements particular to my ancestral landscape, he explains.
