Story: Connection To Country
Artist: Shara Delaney
This contemporary painting highlights the First Nation People of Australia’s relationship to the land - past, present and future.The circles represent each First Nation group, who we belong to and identify as.
It portrays the intricate, respectful, spiritually and physically dependent, grateful, and protective ties to Country that gives us strength, resilience and a hope for the future. Within this Country, the painting speaks of the past and ongoing connections between Australia’s First Nations People, languages and Country.
As a people, we have been bestowed with a responsibility for lands and seas in which all of the creatures that inhabit the land, sea and sky country. This sense of responsibility is greater than an emotional tie – it is intrinsically tied to the spirits of all aspects of Country - ALWAYS WAS, ALWAYS WILL BE.
