My artwork reflects on an Aboriginal Elder, sharing their wisdom with a younger person. The Elder is sharing his past experiences, knowledge and thoughts, and not speaking from other people’s words. This is how my artwork relates to the theme: “Speaking and Listening from the Heart”. The girl is listening closely to every word, applying it to her own individual life, eventually passing it down for generations to come. My artwork; “Harmonisation” relates to reconciliation because the Elder is restoring friendly relations with the young person.
Reconciliation means… Harmonisation. Acknowledging the things that have happened in the past, and moving forward together.
