Slow Journey Home


This painting is about my transition from prison back to my family. The bends in the journey tracks represent the challenges that custody had for me. The circle in the middle of the tracks is a meeting ground and represents when my family came to visit me and gave me hope. The other track leading to the top of the painting is my future. I’m a proud Palawa man. The symbols in the painting are petroglyphs from Tasmania, rock carvings that date back thousands of years. The shells in the middle of the meeting ground are Maireener shells that the ladies make necklaces out of.

More information

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.
