Marcia Biyayngu

Emerging Artist

Marcia Biyayngu is the daughter of senior weaver Sabrina Roy and granddaughter of master Walamungu weavers Lily Roy, Bonnie Burangarra and Freda Wyartja. Marcia completed her first woven mät in 2018 however her understanding of weaving materials and process has been developed throughout her life. Marcia’s weaving work can be distinguished by her loose technique and combinations of colours that capture her energy and excitement for her craft.

Since starting to weave Marcia has also completed her first etching. This piece depicts her grandmother, Bonnie Burangarra’s, Angidjatjiya (jungle vine fish trap). Marcia hopes to spend time with Bonnie at their homeland of Yilan so that she can learn and carry on the craft of harvesting milarr (jungle vine) and making Angidjatjiya.
