Holly Sanders, Aboriginal Bundjalung woman
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.
Painting and maintaining cultural tradition is important for her identity, wellbeing and expresses the way she understands and respects her culture, ancestors and Country.
‘Flowering Gums’ | Acrylic on canvas | 1m x 1m
This piece represents Eucalyptus flowering blossoms on Country. During summer, colour explodes from gum nuts like fireworks on these beautiful trees. The Eucalyptus is an important tree for Bundjalung people due to its many uses, such as the leaves used for body pains, fevers and chills and the bark and wood to make coolamons, canoes and shields. Many Eucalyptus trees on Bundjalung Country still bear the scars of Aboriginal people’s use over many generations.
