Kurlika Nhuungku

Stacy Byers Artist Statement – Kurlika Nhuungku

My work comes from a place of trauma and a longing for healing.

It pans across my entire adult life.

It is representative of wanting to be well but juggling the intricacies of living with mental and chronic illnesses.


Kurlika Nhuungku is a Paakantyi term for Wild Woman. Kurlika Nhuungku: Ten years of Madness is a physical manifestation of my illnesses and journey to wellness.
