Leaving Country


The black dots in this painting represent my Aboriginal heritage. The white dots represent my Irish heritage. The earthy dots represent Country. The red dots in the middle represents the pain and suffering my ancestors went through by both Aboriginal and white man. The earthy circles represent camping. The “u” shape around the circles represent my mob sitting and talking around the campsite. The lines through the campsite tell of the long journey from Wiradjuri Country to the Murray River for a new life with the family. The goanna as the totem for Wiradjuri people.

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.
