Canvas Print Wakool Parai – One Country
This vibrantly coloured artwork endeavours to capture and bring to life the beauty, diversity and connections of Aboriginal people, culture and country across our nation and time. Generations past, present and future are interwoven throughout the landscape of desert, bush land, waterways and coastline demonstrating strong connection to country and celebrating a people who greatly value family and community.
Our people and communities are depicted by the circles flowing across the canvas from right to left in an upward motion and have a threefold meaning: The central circles depicts past generations, our ancestors, while the expanding waves flowing outward from these circles symbolises the sharing of stories and knowledge to future generations. Their prominent placement within the artwork and the bright colours used signify respect and the importance of passing on our cultural knowledge. Large within the painting represent our community Elders/Leaders, clan groups and organisations, those who are now leading the way and role models to our youth.
