Gina Rinehart and me II
I decided to paint some of the political leaders and big decision makers in the world and our country today... I'm interested in painting strong figures and leaders, we see them on the news and wonder how and why they make their decisions. These powerful people are far away from us here on the APY Lands, but when I paint them it brings them right into the studio. I like to paint with a little bit of humour, humour takes away soem of their power and keeps us all equal (Artist statement, Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art: Tarnanthi 2017).
