Cycle of Life


This painting is about the cycle of life. Like the caterpillar eventually spinning a cocoon and emerging as a beautiful butterfly. Our lives as Aboriginal people can be looked at as a cycle. Our people will emerge from the trauma of colonisation and again be acknowledged for our proud culture.

In my painting the barbed wire and rubbish represents colonisation. Like our people, it shows how even the birds have adjusted to live with this on our Country.

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.
