Congratulations to Brisbane-based artist Krishna Nahow-Ryall who has just been announced as a winner of the 2010 Commonwealth Connections International Arts Residency. Nahow-Ryall, whose ancestors came from Vanuatu, works in a wide range of media including sculpture, installation, digital media and photography. She often creates site-specific works that fuse Pacific patterns with western motif. She will return to Vanuatu to connect with her heritage, engage with local artists and bring back elements of traditional cultures to pass on to younger Australian South Sea Islanders.
