Aboriginal artworks are popular throughout the world and the only living ancient artworks. Its tradition goes back 50,000 years ago revealed by carbon dating of rock painting, cave painting etc. It is amazing that many of the artists do not have any formal education or training.

Story :

Thinking about our ancestors, this painting has been prepared in acknowledgement of those who have lost family ties and cultural connections. The tri-coloured curving bands represent the paths travelled by people to reconnect with lost or stolen family history, while the shapes and infill colours utilised remind us of our ancestors’ country, and our own lost connections to family and culture. Greg Mathews is a descendant of the Manegin people, being a clan member of Tasmania’s north-west nation. Greg’s painting is an excellent depiction of this lost culture.
