Mother and daughter artistic duo Fiona Clarke and Patricia McKean will shed a new light on a timeless relationship this month.

The Indigenous pair are showcasing their artwork in an exhibition entitled ‘Bonding in Art’ at Warrnambool’s Scope Gallery.

The exhibition will run from June 24 to July 16 coinciding with NAIDOC celebrations in the region.

Long-standing artist Fiona Clarke said working with her daughter was a unique bonding experience.

“Trisha has been painting with us since she was three years old,” said Ms Clarke. “She’d be working on her own easel between Ken and me even when she was that small.”

The Bonding in Art exhibition will also feature artwork the pair have created for national sporting groups in the past twelve months.

Ms Clarke will showcase her signed Cricket Australia polo shirt worn during the Boxing Day Test in 2016.

Ex-Warrnambool College student Ms McKean will display the signed Richmond AFL Club Indigenous round jumper that she designed early last year.
