BiographyHistory

Lyndy Delian traces her heritage through her father, mother and grandmother to Black's Town, Dunolly, Western Victoria. She 'sees herself as a product of the cultural genocide that occurred in Australia under colonisation'. Delian's search for family follows the oral tracks left to her in stories from childhood. Her work spans music, singing, songwriting, visual art and writing. Delian's artworks have won major awards and some are held in the collections of the National Museum of Australia, the National Gallery of Australia and the Canberra Institute of Technology. She was a founding member and coordinator of the ACT Indigenous Textile Artists Group. Source : Talking Ink from Ochre (2002).
