WEAVING THROUGH TIME
Artist: Ailsa Walsh
Language groups: Lardil, Kullili and Yuggera (QLD, Australia)
Acrylic on canvas, 2018
This artwork depicts people from the desert and near the ocean. It represents mothers, aunties, grandmothers, daughters and nieces from the vast Indigenous communities. Various regions have their own weaving techniques, depending on the particular tree or plant the women have used.
This piece is dedicated to Ailsa’s grandmother Florence Dawson Davidson who was a strong elder and a stolen generation survivor.
