Jack Macale (Loodgengardinge or Loodgebuddunge) is a Japilyi (mother’s side) and Japanungka (father’s side) man from the Biridu Community / Prairie Hill, Fitzroy Crossing. His latest exhibition Ngaraarrdgyie Mohyi Biridu Nigyie Bunuba Grama (My home Biridu Community and I’m a proud Bunuba man) reflects on his Aboriginal culture. His fine-lined drawings explore his tribes (Bunuba, Walmajarri, Kija, Djara and Wanyjrra), spirits and elders. Macale has been developing his work further since moving to Townsville earlier this year.
