Fenced Out

Fenced Out

Regular price $380.00 Sale

A4 Gouache and Ink Drawing created during my Art Research Trip to Sydney in Nov 17.  It refers directly to my feelings about how Tasmanian Aboriginals were fenced out of their traditional lands due to settler farming practices.  I read this piece which deeply saddened me at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery on my trip early Nov 17....
 
"As sheep and cattle overran the country in the 1820's, landholders began to fence their land. Aboriginals found they were locked out of their country.  They retaliated by burning fences in their attacks on farms". 

All proceeds donated to the Australian South Sea Islanders Association - Port Jackson.
