Emu Connections - Utinat Connections
My name is Brooke Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from the Mount Isa area in Queensland. This painting is called “Utinat Connections” in the Kalkadoon language which means “Emu connections”.
This painting is my interpretation of Utinat which is the bird totem for the Kalkadoon people and my family and the connections he has in life.
