You can lead a Horse to Water, but….. – 2021
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 40 x 40 cm (pre-stretched)
You know that saying …..It’s a bit like that out here with Government mob coming into town and trying to tell Aboriginal people what to do and how to do it. There’s always something they are trying to make us do different….bit by bit trying to change the ways of our culture. Over time things change a bit, but lots of things can’t change as well. Some things are Law and will never change and we don’t even understand why they think we should change them….you can lead a horse (or a black fella) to water, but you can’t make us drink, especially if the water might be poison.
