ARTIST INFORMATION:
Colin Jones Indigenous heritage belongs with the Kalkadoon (Western Queensland) and Nunuckle (Stradbroke Island, Southern Queensland) tribal groups. Born in 1947, Colin’s passion and broad knowledge of Indigenous Art was inspired and fuelled during his early childhood, in the time spent with his Aboriginal grandfather. Colins multi-layered dot paintings tell the stories of his ancestral lands, where the rainforest, rivers and land connect. In these depictions, there are small foot and hand prints telling the stories of Aboriginal people roaming the land. He is a renowned and very talented traditional artist with his paintings highly sought after in Australia and around the world. Colin is a very proud family man and sits with Madison, one of his grandchildren.

THREE KANGAROOS DESIGN STORY:
The circles in the reproduction of the traditional painting “Three Kangaroos” represent the life forces of the land. Europeans measured time linearly – hours, days, weeks, months etc. To Aboriginal culture time was continuous so the circles are representing time that is collectively never-ending. The circular patterns symbolise the Dreaming or Creation, the now or present time & the future or future generations. The Dreaming taught aboriginal people how to care for the earth or the mother. They believed if you looked after mother earth she would look after you with all her resources. Aboriginals believed if you destroy the earth you destroy yourself. In the Dreaming aboriginal people learnt how to respect & care for the land, animals, plants & rivers. The kangaroos are camouflaged with the colours of the land for protection. So the aboriginal people needed to understand, the land, the kangaroos & where to hunt.
