Charmaine Davis is a proud Gumbaynggir and Bundjalung artist based in Queensland. Painting landscapes and working within 3D sculptural mediums, her artistic creations are deeply connected to culture, homelands, and family.
Charmaine’s works are reflections of a spiritual connection to Country. Through ancestral links, family, identity, and community Charmaine tells not only her own story, but that of her lineage and people.
Her works act as visual portals that allow the viewer to connect with her art and cultural vision. Charmaine says: “It is in my blood to create.” Connection to history and Country has always grounded her practice within a deeply authentic place.
Charmaine’s practice includes repurposing textile materials such as netted curtains and fresh produce bags to then create intricate stencils that are used within her painting practice.
Living and working in Ipswich, Queensland which is located on lands of the Jagera, Yuggera and Ugarapul people, Charmaine’s works are held across many private collections, exciting public art projects and in numerous regional and council galleries (Ipswich Art Gallery, Grafton Regional Galley and City of Sydney).
