Flora and Fauna (Colour Correction) by Kate Constantine – Original work on canvas; acrylic paint
600 X 600 X 50mm

Stretched and Framed and ready to hang!

May 2019

When you fix a mistake, you make a correction, a change that rights a wrong. When you correct a misspelled word, you’ve made a correction. Well done! Correction also applies to punishment, which is another way to right a wrong. A correction is an improvement or a revision when there’s something that needs to be fixed.

Konstantina known for powerful use of colour has put together a series of work that annotates today’s political and socio-political environment from her perspective as an Aboriginal woman, mother and activist.

Each work plays on a double entendre based on typically European interpretations of words, though uses colour to counter that European meaning and provide an Aboriginal context.

This work is extremely personal and emotive. It is meaningful on a number of levels, whilst boasting a playfulness that takes the sting out of the messages Konstantina delivers the viewer.

DIDACTIC:

It is sometimes stated that the 1967 Referendum overturned a ‘Flora and Fauna Act’. This supposed act classed Aboriginal people alongside native Australian flora and fauna.

While no such act ever existed, the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 encouraged this belief. This Act gave the NSW government control over Aboriginal heritage and landscape.

In addition, some states did manage Aboriginal affairs through departments that also looked after flora and fauna.

At the time there was a better understanding of the number of sheep and cattle in Australia than the Aboriginal population.
