Commission 100% Knights
This artwork tells the story of empowering the Australian indigenous youth of the Hunter to achieve their dreams!
The expanding circles placed at the very centre of the painting represent strength and growth, through partnerships that embrace Aboriginal cultural, while creating successful pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Youth to successfully journey from school to work.The textured backdrop is representative of the Wonaruah people and their country. Intertwined with the Knights head, it demonstrates unity of purpose and vision in providing deadly futures to our youth.
Woven through this you see the pathways linking gathering places. Each is representative of the season’s or stages of the journey taken depending on the individual goals of each young person: School; Vocational Training opportunities; Employers.
The painting also shows both the mountain’s (top) of Wonaruah country and the Ocean (bottom), encompassing the country traveled, as youth move towards embracing their 100% Knights - DEADLY future!
