Story: Mothers Country
I come from a strong line of Aboriginal women. Descendant of old Granny Mibu, Neli Nidgeri, born at Pulan (Amity). My mother Sandra Rose Delaney nee Close who is a current artist and author. There’s also my maternal grandmother Marion Violet Close nee Currie who married into the close family. My Nan is 95 years old and still going strong. She’s originally from Jerico/Bunya Mountains but an Elder of our community Minjerribah.
This painting is our many family groups on country past and present that keep growing. The circles bounded together, for stronger relationships. Colours chosen to represent our women, with touches of blue to reflect Quandamooka Waters. Babragowi ‘pigface flowers’, a native plant found along the coastal areas of Minjerribah reminded me of the women in my life. My mother told me our Grannies gathered wildflowers for special occasions, for decorations in their homes and for the graves.
