Statement: Jack Green's Paintings
In 2020, Garrwa man Jack Green submitted a series of paintings to the parliamentary inquiry into the destruction of 46,000-year-old caves at Juukan Gorge. For Green, the submission was another way to make his voice heard.
Green’s art tells stories of dispossession, destruction and the sadness of First Nations peoples prevented from protecting and caring for Country.
'There are lots of important sacred sites and song-lines throughout our country... when these places are damaged it hurts us. We feel cut open.'
- Jack Green
