Simon Normand

Simon Normand is a sculptor, printmaker, painter, photographer, author and environmentalist. He has lived and worked with elders in southern Arnhem Land for over 30 years and has worked with Marra, Alawa, Yanyuwa, Warndarrang, Nunggubuyu, Waagilak and other elders to paint maps which show local cultural knowledge and stories for Country. His on-going cultural mapping projects in collaboration with the Ngukurr community on the Roper River document a long time connection with the landscape of the Northern Territory and the first peoples who still intimately hold on to one of the most remote and unknown parts of Australia.
