The Land Bleeds – 2023
Acrylic on Canvas – 122 x 110 cm
The land breathes and the land bleeds due to mining, fracking and global warming. My grandfather said that our land bleeds with hurt and dies when mistreated like when a person dies they bleed out so the land withers and bleeds and also dies. When I was a little girl, my grandfather Dundalee used to often say look after nature do not mistreat it always look after it. Do not put poison in creeks or waters or the land as it is a living being just like us.
