Holiday 2021: Introducing
Ryhia Dank [Nardurna]

This year we have partnered with Indigenous Australia Artist, Ryhia Dank [Nardurna]
to create a beautiful collection of artwork
for our limited-edition Holiday 2021 gifts.

Raised in a remote community in the Northern Territory in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Ryhia comes from a family and community of strong women from the ocean. They travelled a long way before settling in the hills and fresh water Country.

“I am Gudanji/Wakaja and I grew up in
a remote community
in the Northern Territory.
A contemporary Aboriginal woman
who lives in modern Australia,”
Ryhia Dank [Nardurna]

Featuring a series of colourful patterns, prints and traditional dot work inspired
by Ryhia’s connection to country, Ryhia refers to her painting as storywork and Nardurna (meaning woman in her language). Each original artwork tells a story and evokes a memory. From searching for turtles as a child to the flowing rivers and creeks during the wet season ‘Garnumba’.

“Before I started painting
I actually had to ask for permission to paint because within my family group only certain people can. I didn’t have a lot of confidence in myself
so I asked my grandmother what she thought of my work. She said it was really good and told me just to paint, and even
if I don’t like something,
I should just finish and get through it, which gave me
the confidence to continue,” says Ryhia.

This year, our Collection of sought-after Holiday gifts appear in the same 100% recycled
cardboard box that debuted last year with a kaleidoscopic wrap featuring a series of bespoke, colourful patterns and traditional dot work uniquely designed by Ryhia.

"I love how easy collaborating with ELEVEN Australia was.
They allowed me to be the artist I am and had a genuine love and respect for my heritage."

ELEVEN Australia HYDRATE TRIO

“The ELEVEN Australia HYDRATE Trio is called [Garnumba] meaning
‘wet season’ – the creeks
and rivers are flowing
and the waterholes are bursting the banks.
Ryhia Dank [Nardurna]

ELEVEN Australia SMOOTH TRIO

“The ELEVEN Australia Smooth Trio is called [Babarra] meaning
‘tell a story’. This artwork
is about having a safe,
happy and healthy journey.
It shows land, bush plums
for health, flowers for growth and is about the journey.” Ryhia Dank [Nardurna]

ELEVEN Australia VOLUME TRIO

“The ELEVEN Australia Volume Trio
is called [Magajarra] meaning ‘country’. While driving from Queensland to the Northern Territory there is a hill on one side of the road and one on the other that’s surrounded by plains they sit there overlooking the land, protecting it. We always camped at the base of one of these hills, it always felt like home.” Ryhia Dank [Nardurna]

ELEVEN Australia REPAIR TRIO

“The ELEVEN Australia Repair Trio
is called [Lagija] meaning ‘shallow coolamon’. It’s about healing and nurturing, Coolamons are used to gather food, hold items, carry hot
coals and rock babies to sleep, they
are made with a strong light timber
and come in many different sizes.”
Ryhia Dank [Nardurna]

ELEVEN Australia BLONDE TRIO

“The ELEVEN Australia Blonde Trio is called [Aliyulu] meaning ‘to find’. One of my favourite memories
is searching for turtles. While the ground is wet after the rain turtles burrow under the ground so that when the waterhole dries up they remain in a damp environment
and are protected.”
Ryhia Dank [Nardurna]
