I painted this picture following the Uluru Climbing ban. It was my way to show our next steps to healing. The ban was momentous. For years our cultures, souls, spirits, ancestors have been walked on, and following the ban we could finally breathe again. It didn't matter if this was your Country or not, a weight lifted off our shoulders and it was a small, yet massive win for us all. 


The many spirits (through a variety of colours) are set free following the Uluru climbing ban, they arise above the rocks back into the skies. In front of Uluru are my personal portrayal of birthing caves in which we we begin to be reborn. The colours below are our paths to healing. This journey of Uluru is one of healing and birth. It is a place that feels like home. 


A place that feels like home.
