“This painting represents a placard or poster of the exhibition theme – Always Was, Always Will Be.”
We have recently opened a joint exhibition with Wadjar Regional Indigenous Gallery and the Armidale and Region Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place.
Although Covid-19 restrictions have changed our plans for an official opening, the works are now on display in the gallery.
Here is a taste of what is is on show.
“Aboriginal people knew their boundaries. They weren’t marked by lines on a map but by the features of the landscape – by the ridges, the rivers and the creeks.
The people knew that hunting was only allowed within these boundaries.”
“This artwork is inspired by my own fingerprint. The unique pattern it creates which is exclusive to me; it plays a large part in my identity as it does with everybody else.”
