‘Bush Berries’ | Acrylic on canvas | 60cm x 60cm
This piece represents bush berries and seeds on Country. Food collected by women such as seeds and fruits, provided a regular diet for Aboriginal Bundjalung families on a daily basis.
Bundjalung women possess a detailed knowledge of our local environment, knowing which plants hold food and medicinal properties, how to use them, and where to find them. Women are educators, instilling in their jarjum (children) the knowledge of how to locate, gather, and prepare food.
Holly Sanders is a proud Aboriginal Bundjalung woman who is currently residing on Yuin Country, South Coast of New South Wales. Through her art she aims to share her stories, culture and Country in a contemporary way. The patterns of Saltwater Country motivate her, as do stories from the past.
The colours and patterns utilised in her art are a reflection of her connection to Country and used to develop a modern interpretation of her Aboriginal culture.
