A Spiritual Connection


This painting has a deep meaning of purpose to me. It is about my journey and my Dreaming. It represents my spiritual connection to my culture and my Country, my strength, and the self-belief that makes me the proud man I am today. There are many hours in this painting. Sometimes I feel I lost hours, or days, when it felt like I was being guided by the spirits of my ancestor, teaching me my culture and who I am supposed to be.

The shield with its woodgrain is my strength and knowledge which I need to get me through every day. The patterns represent time – past and present. The campsites along the way are where I’ve been, where I am now, and where I’m going next on this deadly journey.

What is artwork stretching?
Your stretched and ready to hang painting will come complete with D-rings, hanging wire, and a small artwork label affixed to the back.

Why can’t I select unstretched canvas?
Some of our paintings are painted close to the edge of the canvas, and don’t have a border wide enough for standard stretching. These artworks will be ‘strip-lined’ with a quality cotton edging. As this is a boutique process, these paintings must be stretched by The Torch and are not available to be shipped as unstretched artworks.

Some paintings may also be unavailable unstretched because they have already been stretched for use in exhibitions.

How much will the artist receive?
100% of the artwork price, set before the stretching and delivery costs are added, is paid directly to the artist.
