This artwork is part of Amanda Hinkelmann's 'TheMatriach' exhibition
Original artwork by Amanda Hinkelmann
Amanda is a proud Wiradjuri woman from Wagga Wagga
This artwork represents the mental burden that women carry, and the way in when it rains- it often pours.
Women often carry a domestic and mental load that others sometimes don’t understand. There is a feeling of being drained and languishing in moments when they should be feeling happy. This piece is a metaphor for a lack of support and how we can sometimes feel very isolated in our duties particularly in situations that are more traditional or bound by cultural expectations. It is knowing that better times are coming.
This artwork links to “Dhala-bu-nya” which symbolises the absence of support when it’s most needed and the reluctance to accept support when it is finally offered.
