Bundy artist invited to Albury

AWARD-winning indigenous artist Roger Saunders has been invited to take a month's residency at the prestigious Albury Art Gallery in Victoria.

Mr Saunders will showcase his unique painting style, incorporating elements of traditional and contemporary indigenous art and bright, bold colour schemes.

In February, he we will travel to Albury for the residency featuring an exhibition of his work and workshops with local children and artists.

Mr Saunders said the invitation had come as an honour and would help him showcase his work to a new audience.

"I'm pretty rapt with it all to be honest," he said. "It's going to be a bit of a highlight."

Mr Sauders identifies with the Ngarrindjeri people of South Australia and has studied the styles of indigenous artists in areas such as the Kimberly, Pilbara and Kakadu. He has perfected a special technique of indigenous painting that gives images depth when viewed with special 3-D glasses.

Mr Saunders will hold a workshop at Hinkler Shopping Centre between January 16 and 20.
