My artwork is about how our lives influence what we see and feel and how that represents us as individuals. My artwork is Australian flora sprouting out of a human heart. It represents how Australia’s natural landscape is cherished by the ones that live on the land, including Aboriginal peoples. This is how it relates to reconciliation. Everyone has the right to love what they wish to, no matter your race, gender or upbringing. Anyone can appreciate the land they live on and truly feel proud of who they are and where they live. It relates to the theme as it represents how our senses help us create love by communicating about cultures and taking in that information to overall really know what you represent as a valuable human being on this Earth.

Reconciliation means… Reconciliation is bringing Aboriginal peoples and other Australians together. It means being kind and caring for each other and treating everyone equally. Its working together to overcome division.
