Kim Healy's new Songline collection displayed in boutique digital gallery and exhibition space

Phoebe Blogg -

Celebrated for her unique storytelling through a variety of mediums, First Nations artist Kim Healy has become well known for several of her artworks, including her new five-piece series labelled Songline.

Recently exhibited at the Reconciliation Wall at NSW Parliament House, the Songline artwork series is now being exhibited at Sydney's popular digital art gallery and exhibition space, Curatorial + Co.

Available to view both online and in the windows of the gallery's physical exhibition space, Songline is set to gain the attention of many creative Sydney-siders.

Acting as a reflection and expression of her Indigenous heritage, country, culture and history, Songline is a living narrative and ancestral mapping system which acts as a guiding line through Healy's life.

"Songline is a creation story, a mapping system, a path created by my ancestors and is a living narrative. Utilising a contemporary palette that engages the audience in the work, the series speaks of my connection to my country and my culture," Healy said.

Known as an Indigenous Artist and a direct descendant of the Bundjulung and Gumbayngiirr nations as well as a descendant of the Djunbun (Platypus) Clan, Healy creatively fuses her culture into all her artworks, no matter the medium.

Although initially having started her career with the use of print/media works on paper, Healy went on to work with recycling metal and three-dimensional sculptural work - a transformation which saw her progress and evolve as an artist in more ways than one.

Entwining colour, light, and shadow to bring a deeper meaning to her pieces, Healy's work now spans across mediums including photography, collage, printing, 3D imagery and sculpture

Working and creating out of her small studio cottage on the coastline of the Clarence Valley, the talented artist continues to attract and engage a diverse audience, using a contemporary palate, and modern design, deeply embedded with her heritage.

Known for their curated collection of one-of-a-kind and limited edition works by artists and designers from across the globe, Curatorial+ Co acts as the perfect creative hub to showcase and celebrate Healy's work.

Similar to Healy, the team at Curatorial+ Co strives to create a lasting connection between the artist and the individuals viewing the piece of art.

Created to offer new collectors a starting point for their art obsession and to give established art lovers an array of alternative pieces to add to their spaces, it was only fitting that Healy joins forces with the Sydney-based business to celebrate and showcase her work.

Songline will be installed in Curatorial + Co from 19 December 2023 to 17 January 2024. The works will be available to view through the gallery's William Street and Riley Street windows throughout the duration.
