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.

TURTLES DREAMING DESIGN STORY:
The turtles in the reproduction of the traditional painting “Turtles Dreaming” represent the life forces of the turtle and the vivid colours of the circles symbolise the colours of the reef and ocean. Every breeding season, female turtles return to the same beach where they themselves hatched. After laying up to 100 eggs in the warm sand, the mother turtle’s work is done and she then leaves her eggs to incubate. The tiny turtles finally push up virtually in unison at night and head for the light coming from the ocean. They endure an arduous journey across the sand and about 1 in 1,000 survives and reaches the relative safety of the ocean. Aboriginals respected the mother turtles and understood their breeding cycles and would dig up the nest and only take some but never all the eggs. They would then carefully cover the nest and leave the remaining eggs to hatch in the warmth of the sand.
