Artist statement: Flowers grow, the world revolves, and we make it through another day. While the sun sets, the diminishing rays ignite our own introspection on the status quo and our part in that. As we take stock of where we are, intertwined is a wealth of knowledge and strength. This is the destination, and now is the journey.

Whose work centres Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people because they understand our freedom is tied to Aboriginal sovereignty? A COVID-19 world shone a light on the stark differences between rich and poor, employed and unemployed, black and white.
