Are you a drunk, are you in the outback, violent, a thief, criminal, primitive, are you black, brown eyes, have a deep understanding of all the culture, are you heterosexual, are you a deadbeat dad, on welfare, connected to Country, spiritually evolved, do you like damper, bush tucker, footy and boxing, are you good at sports, can you read, or are you just dumb, whitewashed, washed up, are you good at art and music, do you play the didg, do you do dot painting or x ray style. Are you good at Kooriokie…….are you an Aboriginal Stereotype?
A new collage, mixed media, work for a small show in Bendigo. It had to have an egg reference and I have given my Mob frying pans for heads with fried eggs cooking in them. Everyday I feel like an alien in my own land so I wanted to make the Mob strange and ‘colonised’ as they have adapted to the cooking tools in a big way. Why not make us surreal, as either way we are treated as outsiders in our Country….
