Richard Griffiths: Back to Burra Bee Dee 

Richard Griffiths is a Burnie-based artist who grew up on an Aboriginal mission called Burra Bee Dee (NSW), which means flying fox, or flying mice. When Griffith lived on the mission he wasn’t allowed to practice his culture – now he is free to explore and learn about his culture through art making. The Back to Burra Bee Dee series began in 2016 when Griffiths spent time on King Island. He researched images and text about his family and Burra Bee Dee. This series of black and white linocuts have evolved from this research and tell stories about his own, and his ancestors’ past. The linocuts were made by Richard Griffiths and printed by Nilissa Wood.
