Sacred Water - Jacinta Kelly
Sacred Water - Jacinta Kelly 198-17
Acrylic on Cotton Rag, 38 x 59cm
Framed under Glass
Jacinta is a young Wathaurong woman whose work reflects themes of contemporary indigenous culture.
This vibrant work represents the local landscape. The blue in the centre of the piece depicts water as sacred and central to humanity. Whether it be a waterhole, creek or the ocean, water nourishes us on this earth.
The red and yellow formations around the waterhole represent the land that exists around water. This could be sand dunes in the desert, or sand dunes on the bay, illuminated by the sunset.
