Red-tailed Black Cockatoo. This artwork represents my grandparents. The greatest love story I’ve ever witnessed, two people who well and truly loved each other. Two people who built a strong foundation and worked as team in everything. I’m so grateful I was able to be apart of their lives and listen to their late night chats before bed, see them steal kisses in the kitchen, watch them power through every project together and never give up on each other.

This piece was created on Gimuy Walubara Yidinji Country in Cairns, QLD.

Artist Biography

My name is Ayesha Woibo and I’m a Binhdhi Warra woman of the Guugu Yimidhirr people. I'm also a descendant of the Dhubbi Warra, Dharrba Warra & Guugu Buyun clans with connections to Hope Vale, Cooktown and the surrounding areas. The story behind the name Gurrngul is a short story as my Great-grandfather had told my mum that I was to be called that name once I was born. I was named after one of my Ancestors, she was a sister to one of our Kings.

I learnt at a young age that nothing empowered me more and brought me strength than learning my culture - I yearned for it and still do. I’ve spent so much time in the presence of my Grandfathers & Nannies, on my Old Peoples Country, seeking knowledge, always asking questions. I loved learning about the history, the connection to land & the sacredness of being an Aboriginal woman. I knew through these conversations they were weaving me in into the woman I am today.

An Elder once told me that songs, names and stories are passed down through a spiral to keep our culture strong. I am one of many Gurrnguls that have lived, and I won’t be the last.
