Through Kaurna Mena (Through Kaurna Eyes) by contemporary Kaurna/Ngarrindjeri landscape architect and visual artist Paul Herzich is an exciting and new body of visual art that respectfully acknowledges and celebrates various aspects of the local landscape as seen through a Kaurna persons eyes.
One of Paul’s major works of art that he is well known for is the award winning Kardi Munaintya (Emu Dreaming) Tram Super Graphic. Nevertheless, Paul is truly pleased to showcase to you his artistic skills within his local community by exhibiting a collection of new works at Gallery 1855 that reflect his connections to Kaurna culture and his knowledge of the Kaurna landscape.
Works of his exhibition are expressed through a combination of materials like laser cut and bead blasted sheet metals suitable for gardens and entertainment areas. As well as hand-painted acrylic on canvas works which are suitable for indoor environments and are well worth a look.
