Ryan Presley is a young Indigenous artist based in Brisbane. After recently visiting his fathers’ country for the first time, Presley became interested in combining traditional Aboriginal painting styles, with religious concepts and symbolism. His upcoming exhibition with Jan Manton Art, The Good Earth, refers to the Christian parable of The Sower, and the lesson that seed on fertile earth will yield growth, whereas sowing seed on unsuitable ground will invariably result in loss - a metaphor for the success or failure of new or different ideas.
