This exhibition is the first Melbourne solo showing of Napolean Oui's work. Traditionally the large shields of tropical north Queensland are decorated in bold designs with black outlines - almost abstract but each with a meaning. These large rainforest shields provide a great canvas on which to paint the striking designs unique to the region. These designs are often the artists own totem, imparting the shield with protective qualities.
