About the Artist - Colin Jones
Colin Jones was born in 1947 in Ipswich Queensland and is of Kalkadoon and Nunuckle tribal descent. Colin's Aboriginal name is K0-Ro which means Brolga Wings. As a young boy, Colin leaned to paint from his grandfather. The subject of Australian Black history is near and dear to Colin and it is richly depicted in every painting he produces. His multi-layered dot paintings tell the stories of his ancestral lands where the rain forest, rivers and land connects. Bush Tucker is in abundance and native animals live harmoniously together providing a rich source of food for the native dwellers. In these depictions there are small gestures such as the foot and handprints telling the stories of Aboriginal People
About the Design - Colours of the Land
The circles in this reproduction of the traditional painting represent the life forces of the land European measured time linearly - hours, days, weeks, months etc. To Aboriginal culture time was continuous so the circles are representing time that is collectively never-ending. the circular patterns symbolise the Dreaming or Creation, the now or present time and the future or future generations. The Dreaming taught Aboriginal People how to care for the earth or the mother. They believed that if you looked after Mother Earth she would look after you with all her resources. Aboriginals believed if you destry the earth you destroy yourself. In the Dreaming Aboriginal People learned how to respect and care for the land, animals, plants and rivers. the kangaroos are camouflaged with the colours of the land for protection. So the Aboriginal People needed to understand the land, the kangaroos and where to hunt
