STORY - Country Harvest

 

Country Harvest

Harvesting on country holds deep meaning to our people, from freshwater country to the saltwater country. This painting is the journey through harvesting, the deep spiritual connection to cultural practices. These traditions have become increasingly challenging since colonisation. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are fighting hard to ensure their voices and values are heard in the wellbeing of our waterways. This painting I created to tell my own stories and knowledge of the land, showing our deep connection to harvesting country and all that surrounds
