Warren Mason & Burning Desire Festival present

This Is Me

Sat 21 Nov 2020 6:00pm

Warren will perform songs, stories and poetry in the beautiful Colville Gallery surround by the artwork of Stephen Lees.

Warren uses a range of mediums in his art practice with all works linking back to the idea of healing scars, incorporating his loves for art, music, story and knowledge sharing in this process.

 

Land and country have always influenced the journey Warren has taken with art. The way land is constantly changing colours and shapes is one of the greatest influences on his practice. Along with spending time around his parents who have always been creative people.

 

Feeling disconnected from his country plays a big part of the healing that he is currently undergoing at this stage in life. And forming connections both with land and people through his art and music is what Warren aims to achieve through his art.

Warren feels blessed to be a self-taught artist as he believes it gives him the opportunity to reflect himself into the art and music he creates, showing who he is and where he comes from. He feels it also allows him not to conform into the status quo giving him the chance to experiment and create new and innovative art pieces.

 

Warren was born in Dirranbandi, south east Queensland and grow up in Goodooga, a small aboriginal community in north west New South Wales. He now lives in Tasmania with his wife and three children.

 

He is a proud indigenous man with lines to the Yorta Yorta and Yuwaalaraay tribes.
