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.
