About The Event

Konstantina (Kate Constantine) is a proud Gadigal woman and artist. 

She is a multi-award winning, nationally and globally represented artist who is painting her Gadigal people back into the narrative of Sydney’s history. Her work, whilst predominantly focused on her brand of contemporary fine art dot-painting, does span other disciplines such as wood carving, block-printing, writing and illustrating. 

This retrospective covering the past seven years of her painting Country is an ode to the Gadigal of Sydney. These honourable, graceful and truly inspirational people whose stories are the backbone and lifeblood of Konstantina’s works. The Gadigal language is used throughout this book in attempt to share the stories with the use of the traditional language. This is a passion for Konstantina who is one of a few a speakers of the original language of Sydney. 

This collection of contemporary and traditional stories have made their way to the artist by many means. Yarns with Elders, Academics, Historians, Ethnographers and other authors, along with thousands of hours in libraries and archives across Australia and the UK.
