The work of Indigenous artist Jasmine Coe was featured in our exhibition ‘BIRTHRIGHT – Journeys of Reconnection’ 2021.
“My art now celebrates and reinstates the values I have learnt from connecting to my Wiradjuri heritage by painting experiences or personal themes. One of the lessons that has stuck with me the most if the act of ‘caring for country’. I try to uphold these throughout my work through symbolism or representation. Honeybees have had a presence throughout my journey and feature a lot within my work as they act as a personal reminder of the importance of balance. They are an example of collective energy, community and the strength of working together with nature.” Jasmine Coe
