I remember the first time I saw the WA Unlimited exhibition at Art Gallery WA the paintings by Badimaya First Nation artist Julie Dowling brought tears to my eyes.. it's not often you see such intensity of expression looking straight back at you.. I would love it if you would embiggen and read the words, the links also.. the words are so important..
The work here by Nyoongar artist Sandra Hill also tells of the feelings of displacement for those who lived under the shocking Assimilation Policy. Two eminent Australian artists telling it as it was/is. It was Australia Day yesterday, no fireworks to see here ✨ Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..
