It is 38cm x 58cm, acrylic on wood.
It reminds me that we are more than a bunch of genetics, labels, conditions. Our personhood is also formed by those who were our heritage and we leave impressions of it on all we knew, loved and leave behind, that becomes our heritage. It is a painting which pays homage to the importance of ancestry, of nurture and the legacy of what we leave behind.
I hope you enjoy the painting. You can see it and others in my online gallery.
I acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Owners of this country throughout Australia, and their connection to land and community.
