‘Jamigam’ - Saltwater | Acrylic on canvas | 20cm x 20cm
This piece represents saltwater and the connectedness of land and sea. Water holds deep spiritual and cultural significance for Bundjalung people. The vast network of rivers, estuaries and coastal regions found across country represents a rich source of food and culture.
Saltwater is also central to our Dreaming and totems. The land and sea together form saltwater ‘Country’. Coastal environments are owned and cared for by Aboriginal people through a system of strict, complex community responsibilities built up over thousands of generations.
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.
