Yuwi, Torres Strait Islander and Australian South Sea Islander artist Dylan Mooney explores intersections between identity and ancestry in Boundless, a combination of graphic illustration and mixed media work. Queer, Blak and Here, Mooney’s first major series of graphic illustrations, narrate the artists’ lived experience of love within the queer community. Mooney also looks to his South Sea Islander heritage in a new series of portraits rendered in sugar. This symbolic choice of material draws attention to the artist’s familial legacy in the Mackay region, starting a dialogue about contemporary Australian South Sea Islander identity.
