Rhonda Murray’s work, Minnamurra, has been inspired by her love of the beautiful Minnamurra River, where you will often find her swimming or kayaking as a form of relaxation. Her artwork has captured the essence of those peaceful and meditative moments and she wishes to bring to the viewer the importance of stillness and serenity – an environment most valuable in these hurried times. Murray’s work also alludes to a metaphor of how we experience life through the ripple effects of our actions, and looks at what lies beneath the surface.
Rhonda Murray is an Interdisciplinary Artist who lives and works in Jamberoo. She has a passion for printmaking, textiles and painting – often combining all three elements to produce bodies of work which question systems of authority, and the sanctity of cultural attitudes toward family, religion and victims of trauma. She has an interest in memory and how the past impacts the present. Murray has a Cert IV in Visual Arts, and is currently in her final year of a Bachelor of Creative Arts majoring in Visual Arts at Wollongong University.
