This painting is about the unity of Indigenous and non-indigenous Australia. There has been a lot of pain and suffering inflicted on Aboriginal people since the British occupation of our nation. To many, the Union Jack is seen as a symbol of this. People have asked why I’d use it and that I shouldn’t have it on here. But what would leaving it off achieve? Why is it there? It’s there because it needs to be. It’s not something that should ever be swept under the rug and forgotten.I’ve used it to confront the past and acknowledge a very dark chapter in Aboriginal history, but also so we can all move forward as one.

THE JOURNEY: WINNER 1st place, 2013 Gosford Mental health Regional Art Show.
