About the Artists:
Agnes
Agnes Wotton: I’ve lived on Palm Island Bwgcolman, QLD all my life. My mother who is an Indinji woman gave birth to me in 1971 to my Father, a Yalanji Man. I’ve been painting for 17 years and got my first big breakthrough at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair in 2019. Art is a way of expressing myself and escaping from reality; it gives me peace of mind, and I would like to use my work to help others also find their dreams.


Sea Anemone Abstract : “Sea Anemone is part of a series about my home, Palm Island. It conveys the beautiful movement of the waves that slowly move through the house of the anemone. It also captures the inner peace of one’s soul. The red and white elements represent the clown fish that lives in the anemone’s house”.

Spiritual Transformation Abstract Butterfly: The butterfly is symbolic to the Australian Indigenous people – as it’s believed that the butterfly represents spiritual transformation. Butterfly’s also bring hope and happiness. Personally, I paint butterflies to represent self, my connection to the land, my spiritual journey and how far I have come.

Spiritual Transformation Cross Hatch Butterfly: The butterfly is symbolic to the Australian Indigenous people – as it’s believed that the butterfly represents spiritual transformation. Butterfly’s also bring hope and happiness. Personally, I paint butterflies to represent self, my connection to the land, my spiritual journey and how far I have come.



Jo
Jo Wilson: Hello, I’m Jo Wilson a First Nations woman & contemporary Aboriginal Artist. I am a proud descendant of the Ngemba people of Brewarrina (Northwestern NSW). I was born on Ngunnawal Country in Canberra and although I did not grow up traditional on Country I have a strong bond with my spiritual home where my mum grew up in Brewarrina NSW. My identity as an Aboriginal woman is something very important to me, and I have always been proud. I have been on a healing journey these past couple of years and connecting to and finding peace with my Indigenous heritage and culture through painting. I feel so grateful to have found healing and happiness through creative expression. I paint intuitively and through ritual, this connects me to my ancestors. I love to create my own dreaming, depicting healing rainbows, but often also include my love of the moon, sun, stars & universe in my works. I hope my creations bring you joy, healing and strength as much as they have given me creating them. (Artist has revised bio since catalogue publication).

Father Moon Sky: This piece depicts the moon & stars & expanding universe. The moon in our Aboriginal culture is a man and has many different meanings among our First Nations of Australia.


Walking on Country : I created this piece using many colours in the brush strokes. Each brush stroke representing many different tracks made by mob across Country.


Seeds of Life: This painting represents birth in its many different forms of native flora & fauna.


Creating Waves: These lines depict the waves and patterns Mother Earth makes on land & sea.


Cosmic Dreaming: Each design is different but represents the wonder of our cosmic skies.


Mob Connections: Mob which means family in our culture is extremely important. The feeling of love & connection is so strong in our community. Spirit is always healed when you are with mob.
