Our spirits survive and thrive. Our connection cannot be broken. We fight, we stand, we connect. Authority wont suppress our spirits. Political systems will not categorise us. Governing bodies will try to muffle our voices but our spirits will roar. Spirit they will never have, spirit they can never control. This work is a spirit army slowly on the rise.
Description: Black t-shirt with white Aboriginal art graphic and yellow text underneath, saying "When our voices are censored, our spirits make noise". On the back are the words Challenge Injustice with the Amnesty International candle logo.
Artist: Maddison Gibbs
My name is Maddison Gibbs, I am a proud Barkindji woman and grew up in Dubbo, NSW. My artworks are based on my culture, people and surroundings, they tell stories of past and present by using contemporary methods and ideologies. My works include political statements and educational information regarding Aboriginal issues, a subject which I am extremely passionate about. I use different mediums for my works including drawing, ceramics, printmaking and animation.
I am currently studying a Bachelor of Animation at the University of Technology. I have completed my Certificate III Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Arts at Eora College and I am also completing Certificate IV this semester.
