About the artwork:
I have represented and acknowledged the 6 different Aboriginal Countries which have been, and always will be, part of the Hunter Region (included in the bigger description).
For me, this painting explores the relationship between the people and the vast environment that the Hunter Region offers. Rather than one specific setting within the Hunter Region, I decided I wanted to celebrate the full extent, and encompass all of the features of the Hunter Region and all that it provides.
