Not just lookin’, Captain Cook and all the rest of them – 2021
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 61 x 71 cm
Aboriginal people got camping areas all around the coast, people always been there watching out, lookin’ after places and our sacred sites. Ships with people like Captain Cook started turning up, and then all the rest of them. The ships kept coming, putting out their small boats to look around. But they weren’t here just to look around. They were here to take our land and take over our lives.
