Glennys Briggs

We are so pleased to announce representation of Glennys Briggs.


Glennys Briggs is an Indigenous visual artist (Taungwurrung-Yorta Yorta, North Central Victoria) based on Gold Coast, Queensland. Her work reflects a strong connection to land, culture and history through the mediums of, painting, sculpture, installation and sound, wearable art and possum skin cloak making, with her main focus on printmaking. Glennys' artwork has been based around the stories that have been passed down through her family for generations, using her artwork to teach her family and the wider community about her culture and the issues facing them.



“The cultural influences in my work reflect the strong connection to people and land. Like a time-lapse photograph, my work is ever changing to reveal a long history. Each scene rests upon the other like the layers in a midden, each revealing more of the story.”
