Colin Clarke Art Exhibition: Telling Truth

The Unley Uluru Statement from the Heart Support Group proudly hosted an Art Exhibition of Colin Clarke from Sunday 13 August to Sunday 20 August at the Unley Uniting Church.

Colin describes his work, Telling Truth:

“I started painting in the early 2000s to express the natural wonders, stories, events, and social justice issues that I experienced while travelling Australia. The social justice issues “focused to become the injustices that we the colonisers created in this land.” This journey of awakening has led me to acknowledge the injustices as being true, and to own them as being part of my country’s cultural history. In so doing it allowed my journey to start toward the healing of relationships with the First Nations People, and with the land, fauna, and flora I now call home.”

Below is a video of Colin describing one of his pieces of art: Our Massacres at an exhibition in Western Australia in 2018.
