NSW: Frances Belle Parker: Always...
Always... celebrates the Yaegl landscape and explores the artist's connection to it through acrylic on linen paintings, screen prints on paper, photo media and mixed media works.The works combine the processes of making with political and spiritual pursuits. The graphic outcome successfully balances the demands of form, content and text.
'This body of work in my latest solo exhibition Always... is a personal statement of sovereignty of the Yaegl Landscape I am most 'Always was, always will be... Aboriginal Land'. This is a statement which rings true amongst many of our mob. We believe this, we share this and I paint this.'
'I am a proud Yaegl woman, mother and artist. I am deeply inspired by my Mother's land (Yaegl land) and the Island in the Clarence River that my Mother grew up on, Ulgundahi Island. This Island inspires much of my artwork. The stories which are contained within this landscape, have shaped me as a person, as an artist and most recently as a mother. This is my history, my story and it will Always... be my responsibility to share this knowledge with my family and my children.'
