ABOUT THE 2023 ANNUAL REPORT ARTWORK
“Yulinbal Yuruygu” Returning to Our Roots. Artwork commissioned for Community Resources by Worimi artist Kitana Paulson.
Language translation by Aunty Mandy Davis and Muurrbay Aboriginal Language and Culture Co-operative.
“This piece is capturing nature and connection with all things. Trees are living beings that represent growth, change and wisdom. They have whole underground networks of communication with each other through their root systems. The formations in the tree represent spirits and how all things are connected. The remainder of the artwork is showcasing elements of nature in the process of change with the sunset in the background, growing grass with a journey symbol along the way and fish swimming through the lake. Many colours of country. With the translation by Aunty Mandy and Muurrbay, I have named this piece “Yulinbal Yuruygu” which means “Returning to Our Roots” in Gathang. I believe that’s how we connect to spirit & heal, we go inward. Observing & appreciating the simple things. Returning to our roots.”
