Max Gleeson-Stanley

This artwork is about the mistreatment of my country. This artwork is about reconciliation because Australia is a land shared by all. The tears of this figure are trees and he represents a dying landscape. It is everyone’s responsibility to care for and nurture this great land. I have included the Three Sisters, an icon of the Blue Mountains where I live. This landmark has meaning for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

Reconciliation means… In relation to my artwork reconciliation means the coming together of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to make our country a wonderful place.
