Teena McCarthy | ‘Bilyera’ Wedgetail Eagle Totem | 2018

The main theme running throughout my work is related to my grandmother, an Indigenous woman of the Barkindji Tribe from Broken Hill, NSW. I work within narratives, based on her life story, her Dreaming, The Darling River, her Country. Within that context, her story exposes layers of meaning about Australia’s ‘hidden history’: the impact that humanity has done on the natural environment; the effects of Colonisation that have led to the loss of Culture and Spirituality; and, in recent times, the unfortunate events of the Stolen Generations, sadly resulting in much intergenerational pain.
