Kei Kalak (Glen Mackie) - The Coming of Sigai and other stories
Glen Mackie’s (Kei Kalak) current exhibition at FireWorks Gallery is a celebration of his key works from 2009 – 2014. Glen is a Torres Strait Islander from Iama (Yam Island). As the only practising artist on the island, he feels a responsibility to communicate the sacred stories of the four brothers who settled in Zenadh Kes (central and eastern Torres Strait Islands). In his artwork, Glen employs a bold minar patterning style alongside his distinctive geometric designs to express cultural stories and family totemic designs. His works are held in numerous private and public collections.
