The Artwork Story

Quandongs on the River (Rainforest Fruit) 

The original artwork by Andrew Gibson is called “Quandongs on the River”. Quandongs are a rainforest fruit used by the Kuku Yalanji people as a source of traditional food and are also used to make jewellery for women. As the Quandongs ripen they fall to the ground.

“You can find them in the bush and the waterways. Growing up as a child, we would collect the Quandongs to eat and play with. The representation of the Quandongs in my painting is the fruit we would gather, placing them in our traditional baskets called Dilly Bags”.
