CHG Director's Statement: Dick Roughsey (1920-1985), artist and writer, was born in 1920 on Mornington Island, Queensland, and named Goobalathaldin. A member of the Lardil 'tribe', he was one of five brothers and grew up in an Aboriginal family, leading a traditional lifestyle.
Dick Roughsey worked primarily with oil paints and established a body of work that exists today as a record of an emerging contemporary Aboriginal art movement.
In addition to becoming a well respected artist, Roughsey established himself as a supporter of cultural heritage projects that protect Indigenous culture.
His paintings are represented in many Australian and international collections.
