Red Cockatoo - Kurri kurri Marrpu
My name is Brooke Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist and my heritage lies with the Kalkadoon people from the Mount Isa area in Queensland.
“Kurri kurri Marrpu” is the name of this painting which means “Red Cockatoo” in the Kalkadoon language and this is my interpretation of her story.
