This art work is inspired by my Great Grandparents Country, Wiradjuri Country. Connecting with my Ancestors on Country is so special. It's an overwhelming feeling of belonging & pride but also a deep sadness for the way they were mistreated. When in the shadows of these these towering hills I wonder what they have witnessed, the beauty of our ancestors living and caring for country but also the brutality they faced.
The three U shaped symbols represent the three generations of my family that lived on Wiradjuri Country- my G Grandmother, GG Grandfather and his father. This painting celebrates their Country and the immense joy I feel when visiting them here.
