1st PRIZE

Brittany Cochrane

“While sketching and developing the story behind the artwork, I wanted to create something that symbolised what our culture has been through to be surviving hundreds of years later. I interpret the phrase; Always Was, Always Will Be as the journey and all the obstacles our people have had to overcome to be standing strong today. Through colonisation, genocide, and further modernism of the country our culture is still thriving, our people are learning to connect more to culture each day. Whether that be through traditional hunting or gathering, coming together for ceremony and/or passing down traditions to the younger generation. Our people continue to care for the land as the land cares for us back, continuing that connection to Mother Earth as our people have done for hundreds of years. Symbolism of my story throughout the artwork include;

  • The splatted background represents the pain and agony our ancestors went through during the colonisation and genocide, it’s also specifically placed in the background the show our people’s journey
  • The multiple circles represents each tribe and how they come together for ceremony’s
  • The animals and the tracks are symbolic to bush tucker
  •  The foot prints represents the younger generation leaving their mark by continuing our culture
  • The silhouette of an old Aboriginal man is symbolic to our past ancestors and how they continue to watch and guide our people  
  • The tools such as  the coolamon, clap sticks, digging sticks and boomerang are all equipment our people use to use to hunt and collect.”

The People’s Choice Winner

April Bulmer – McDonald

“My piece describes that we Always was and Always will be connected to mob as shown in the tree top and surrounding what was and always will be, the land that we came from and will return to, fire shown on the land to ward off negativity, smoke to cleanse us shown surrounding us all, nature like the tree and water to keep us going and flowing, our blood that brings us together as one mob, our guidance from our Elders and Ancestors from the dreamtime as shown in the tree.”
