Reko Rennie, I WAS ALWAYS HERE (2015)
- Edition of 5 + 1 AP, Archival inkjet print on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Baryta
Reko Rennie is an interdisciplinary artist who explores his Aboriginal identity through contemporary media. Through his art, Rennie provokes discussion surrounding Indigenous culture and identity in contemporary urban environments. Rennie's works combine the iconography of his Kamilaroi heritage with stylistic elements of graffiti, merging traditional diamond-shaped designs, hand-drawn symbols and repetitive patterning to subvert romantic ideologies of Aboriginal identity.
