“These are the stories we teach our children”

The following quotation is from Short Street galleries website in association with their exhibition “These are the stories we teach our children” – In memory of Kunmanara Williamson. An exhibition from the women artists of Amata.

These works remind us of the imperative significance of inter-generational wisdom. Each work is weighted with a sense of importance, these are not just simple landscapes, they are imbued with meanings of things that are fundamental to our existence. In celebrating country, these women are emphasising the very nature and the significance of consciousness itself.
