About the Artist
Jacinta-rai Ridgeway-Maahs is a contemporary Indigenous Artist, telling stories through art like her ancestors. A proud Worimi woman creating on Butchulla country, Jacinta-rai embraces earthy tones, peachy pinks, pastels and bold colours. Motivated by country, community, culture, life and family, she creates stories that connect with people of all cultures.
Jacinta-rai’s art is meditation. Quiet relaxation comes with every symbol, dash and dot. She strongly believes children are our future, in education, equality, taking care of country, kindness and walking together.
About the Art
Journeys in the sun tells of the many experiences had by my Worimi ancestors as they travelled across country.
The warmth and brightness of the sun are represented by a large mustard circle. A rainbow portrays vast sand dunes of Worimi land as the sun beams down on them and the path travelled.
The large circle pattern embraces the fundamental core of our spirit, coming together and our cultural and community beliefs. Circles demonstrate various mobs in community, yarning with their young, teaching the way of the land using sun, sky and sea to survive on country.
Finally, tracks connect individual mobs and show how they come together in times of celebration or need - living together on country.
