Collection: Brenda Joy Lem

"My art practice is a spiritual practice, the development of awareness and understanding of self. It endeavours to cultivate relationships with people, community and nature. My work expresses my cultural values, and often honours my ancestors and people within my community, artists and activists. Common themes in my work include family history, the passing down and moving through of stories, trauma, energy and memory. The art forms I practice include: visual art, writing, arts education, traditional martial arts - taiko, chi kung and yoga, filmmaking and improvisational music. All of my artistic disciplines support and broaden the possibilities of one another, and along with cooking, gardening, and herbal medicine, create a whole way of being for my life." - Brenda Joy Lem
