Our artwork is entitled ‘Kwop Wirrin’ which translates to ‘Good Spirit’. The Indigenous elder is
a good spirit, trying to live in a modern/European world. This artwork relates to reconciliation by showing the Indigenous elder, with passion for his culture being forced to live in the modernised civilisation. The background also shows the mutual relationship between Indigenous/non Indigenous. It’s sending a message that we have come a long way but we still have further to go. It also relates to the theme homegrown hero by the Aboriginal elder trying to hold onto his culture and traditions yet trying to survive in today’s modern society.
