About the artist:
Contemporary Aboriginal Artist, Holly Sanders, is a proud Bundjalung woman from the North Coast NSW who is currently based in Yuin Country, South Coast NSW. Through her art, she aims to share her stories, culture and Country in a contemporary way. The patterns of her Saltwater Country motivate her, as do stories from the past.
The colours and patterns utilised in her art are a reflection of her connection to Country and used to develop a modern interpretation of her Aboriginal culture. Painting is important for her identity, well-being and expresses the way she understands and respects her culture, ancestors and Country.
“I always look to Country – the land, the sky and the sea – and use these images, stories and memories to paint. I use my art to tell the story of my Country and ancestors because I want to be able to share and celebrate my culture in a contemporary way with everyone.”
‘Sand Hills’ Artwork meaning
This work represents sand hills and Country, symbolising a connection to the land and ocean. The warm natural colours represent the sand, ochre and colours of the Country. The smaller ‘U’ shaped patterns throughout symbolise people, who pass on the knowledge of country to their jarjums (children).
