Deaths in Custody


This is highlighting the problem of Aboriginal deaths in custody. Since the Royal Commission in 1991, 440 deaths have been recorded which is, on average, 14 a year. The Afghanistan war was from 2001-2021 and there were 41 Australian Defence Force deaths, an average of 2.05 deaths a year. Basically Aboriginal people are 7 x more likely to die in custody than Australian defence personnel in war. (The total deaths in custody has risen since painting this picture.)

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.
