Kurun Warun creates artworks that are expansive and capture the rhythms of the land and waterways where indigenous people have lived and cultivated and hunted for thousands of years. The structures in his paintings refer to bodypainting and hunting. They also reflect the managed environment of Aboriginal lands in the Western District of Victoria where his family come from.

The cultures of Girai Wurrung and Djargurd Wurrung people from the lakes areas have left a rich archaeological history of fish traps, midddens, rock scatters and burial locations. Kurun Warun uses elements of this history in his paintings, often employing strong red colour against the dry earth colours of the background landscape. The artist last held a solo exhibition at Japingka in 2017. The recent paintings are on display from 14 May to 30 June 2021.
