Therese Ritchie was instrumental in the political poster movement of the late 1980s and her early work with graphic design techniques continues to inform recent digital collages and inkjet prints. Ritchie is committed to addressing topical issues affecting Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory — the context in which she lives and works — particularly the complex terrain of race relations. Addressing subject matter that is at times painful, sad or frustrating, Ritchie also uncovers its beauty.
