New Lino Prints by Glen Mackie.

Glen has a distinguishable bold style featuring wonderfully threadlike lines. He explains that he has been elected as Yam Island’s ‘official’ storyteller. His mission is to keep alive the sacred stories of the four brothers who travelled from the north before memory and settled at Zenadh Kes, or what most Australians know as the Central and Eastern Torres Strait Islands. In Glen’s works, art and law are combined heroically – the figures are woven into rhythmic patterns of design (minaral). Paintings, prints and sculpted objects by Glen are held in many private collections throughout Northern Queensland.
