Brooke Sutton

IganIti

Acrylic on canvas  

My name is Brooke Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from the Mount Isa area in Queensland. This painting is called “IganIti” in the Kalkadoon language which means “Honey Ant”. My painting represents the honey ants journey through life. The honey ant stores food for his brothers and sisters inside his belly until such a time that food is scarce, he then keeps his family alive by sharing his stored food with them. The honey ant is a delicacy to the Kalkadoon people who dig the ants from the rich red soil and use them as a source of food. By Brooke Sutton
