Mapping Wanaruah / Wonnarua
Debbie Becker is a local Singleton artist and proud descendant of the Wanaruah people. In Mapping Wanaruah / Wonnarua, Debbie studies the intersection of recorded local history and Aboriginal narratives that track the evolution of Wanaruah / Wonnarua land over the past 200 years.
This series of paintings has been undertaken in consultation with Wanaruah / Wonnarua Elders and responds to specific sites in the region, bringing together stories that highlight the enduring resonance of place. The exhibition builds on Debbie Becker’s previous exploration of local mapped narratives, which have been a source of inspiration for the artist since 2018.
