Mathanial Pascoe is a sculptor and bark painter. He is Burarra Martay (dialect) and member of the Warrawarra clan, whose country centres around the site Gamurra Gu-yurra to the east of the Blythe River. He also has close connections with clan groups further east who speak Yan-nhangu and other Yolngu clan dialects. His primary subject matter is warraburnburn, a type of wangarra, ‘ghost’ spirit. He learned under the guidance of renowned Burarra artists and cultural leaders, Jimmy An-gunguna and Alec Wurrmala, but has developed his own stylistic variations in form and design.
