It’s not how we care for Country – 2021
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 50 x 67 cm
Our old people fought hard to win their country back from the government. After years and years of land claims, slowly some of the land came back to us. People started moving home to their country to live on it and look after their sacred sites, but today they are under threat as more and more fracking is starting to happen. Big explosions underground threaten our water. Gas roaring and burning into the sky. We don’t want this to happen. It’s not how we care for Country. When the frackers leave with all their money our water will be poisoned.
