Tides Are Turning (Blak Enough)by Kate Constantine

Original work on canvas; acrylic paint
1010 X 1500 X 50mm

Stretched and Framed and ready to hang!

August 2019

As a fair skinned Koori woman, I am constantly justifying myself to white people as to why my greatest sympathies lie with my First Nations kin. My mother is white, and my father is half white – possibly more / probably less; so why would I align myself and my children with a people who have been trodden on, had their culture trampled, their land stolen and our lives ripped apart….because I am black enough and it is through black people (even those who are merely brown on the inside), that have a duty to change the future for Aboriginal people.

Both a journey of self-reflection and self-actualization, Konstantina bravely faces her biggest critic (herself) and such heavy subject matter in the only way she knows how…. With bold, bright, fabulous colour backed on black.

DIDACTIC:

Cultural change is not only necessary but inevitable for all Australians. We must own up to the shame of assimilation, the white Australia Policy and the Stolen Generations. We must face the Truth, shake its hand, lower our heads and rebuild. The incoming feminine strength and power can and will shift all the things, trust in the women and the Tides will Turn.
