Souls Connecting


This painting is about our Ancestors, who I believe still roam the land. When we die, we come back as an animal we love the most. Tribes can have four to five totems and they must look after them. If they kill anything, they put it on a big fire and sing Songlines that are passed down and its spirit would be reborn.

When I’m out bush, when I am alone, animals come to me. I don’t call out to them or use food to attract them. I find a small clearing and sit on a rock and, as they come closer, I look at the animal only moving my head, then look away. It comes closer. I look again, eye to eye contact, then look away, shorter glances each time. Soon it sits on my leg and we look across the valley, watching kangaroo play. We are connected and trusting each other. This goanna is my totem.

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.
