Artist Biography

Duane Doyle’s mob is the Yimen/Jiman people, located in Central Queensland, Taroom. Their water flow is the Gummoo Wongarra meaning ‘One Water’ which flows from the Carnarvon Gorge / Ranges, down through the land and out to the sea.

Duane was taught to paint by a Ghungalu and Garingbal woman, Aunty Patsy Kemp-Leisha, when Duane was in his 20s. “She sent me away with my brushes and canvases and equipment and told me ‘go and practice’ and I’ve been practising ever since.” Duane’s work moves from traditional Indigenous art to contemporary work focusing on growth, healing and spirituality.

Over the past few years, Duane has been heavily involved with the art community in West End including the West End Community House (WECH) Art Gang. Duane is both an accomplished artist and a Cultural Awareness Educator.  He has been learning and teaching reconciliation for over 20 years.

Duane Doyle is the first artist to have his artwork launched at “Breaking Boundaries”. This artwork can be seen at People’s Park and is projected each night of the week. The artwork is titled Taking ownership of our own conflict upon each other, 2020”

This artwork has been painted in Hope for our strong Aboriginal men to join me to take responsibility against alcohol, drugs and gambling abuse and violent sexual behaviour which is contributing to family violence within our Aboriginal culture. Duane Doyle, was inspired to paint his artwork based on the recent Women's March 4 Justice, focused on recognising equality, justice, respect and an end to gendered violence.
