St Matthews Church, West Pymble
The storyline of this artwork expresses what once was; it is a memory of the lands surrounding West Pymble and features the Lane Cove river. The delicate patterning within the water highlights the movement of the tides, as the water was never still and held abundant wildlife. To tell the story of the past, wildlife tracks of kangaroos, wombats, magpies and lizards are embedded throughout. Concentric circles depict the gathering of people within cultural places, highlighting the campires where they would congregate to exchange gifts and stories. Large centralised circles portray the different Aboriginal Nations that would gather to exchange foods, meet old family members and celebrate ceremonies. Aboriginal motifs related to the Dharug Nation are scattered within the artwork and illustrate aspects of the cosmos, speciral sites and water holes of the surrounding areas. Walking tracks permeate throughout the artwork to pay homage to the people who walked before us.
