Power of words
acrylic on canvas
91 x 61cm
Sheilds, Coolamons, Canoes, Boomerangs and a Nulla Nulla, create the image of the Butterfly. This represents the power of words and the strength that can emerge from words spoken individually and by others.
The shadow cast by the Butterfly in the bottom left corner shows the impact of words, whether they be spoken in goodwill, hate, or deception.
This piece delves into the analysis of language and conversations in search of a story which is true. Thought to this occurred while thinking about words spoken by the government and the inaction followed afterwards.
