Goompi Ugerabah

Goompi’s ancestors are originally from Gurreng Gurreng people near
Maryborough, QLD. After settlement his great-great-grandmother
was forced to move to the Ngnarangwal tribal area (Gold Coast)
and Minjungbal tribal area (Tweed Heads), where Goompi and the
last few generations of his family were born and bred.
Biren Bureibun (Saltwater Dream) is Goompi's first solo exhibition
with Gallery One. The stories of Goompi’s skin father are
expressed in detailed intricate dot patterns and fluid line work
combining neutral landscape tones with the vivid hues of the
rainforest. These stunning visual representations possess a kinetic
energy connecting the viewer closer to the narrative. Each story is
also recorded by Goompi in text on the back of the canvas
creating a new dimension of perspective for the story-telling and
image.
Goompi has exhibited widely in South East Queensland and
Northern New South Wales. Goompi’s art is held in public and
private collections both in Australia and Overseas. Goompi’s art is
found in the collections of The Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A )
in Langley,Virginia, U.S as well as HRH Princess Benedikte of
Denmark.
