About the artist: FIONA OMEENYO

  • Born: 1981 Lockhart River QLD.
  • Region: Lockhart River – Eastern Cape York Peninsula.
  • Language: Umpila

Fiona Omeenyo first appeared on the contemporary art scene in the late 1990s as one of the more prominent members of the newly established Far North Queensland’s renowned Lockhart River ‘Art Gang’. A small and remote community, Lockhart River is located eight hundred kilometres north of Cairns on the Eastern Cape York Peninsula. Growing up, she experienced traditional life – such as camping, fishing, gathering berries – within and around the Lockhart River, Claudie River, Quintell Beach, Chilli Beach, Great Barrier Reef, and the Iron Range (Kutini-Payamu) National Park.

More recently, Omeenyo has been living and working in Cairns as well as completing private and corporate commissions in Brisbane studios. Her paintings continue to reflect both traditional stories and contemporary themes associated with cultural, social and environmental concerns. The artists figurative compositions represent blood line, which connects ancestral spirits with kin relationships amidst coastal beach and reef imagery. Through supernatural manner, ancestors exist simultaneously with the present-day generation.

Omeenyo’s works are currently held in private and public collections both nationally and internationally including National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Cairns Regional Gallery, University of Queensland Art Museum, Queensland University of Technology Art Museum, International Education Services (IES) and the Thomas Vroom Collection Netherlands.
