Artwork Description

‘Gather The Hands’

While I was painting this indigenous woman, the Xavier Rudd song of the same name came on my playlist and straight away it just resonated with me with some of the lyrics being:

“…Flawlessness, contagious, compassionate, engagement
In these hands I belong, in these hands you belong
Foolish, segregation, scars deep beneath the skin
Of the black man and the white man and everyone in between

Forever sacred was the feminine, right down to the final hour
When every baby to be taken was to be poisoned to be soured
Bodies turning in their graves and spirits waiting to go home
Disconnected from their holy place when the museum stole their bones

Cry freedom, still bleeding, still waiting for a reason
Throw these arms around the world, throw these arms around the world
Through the eye of a needle we tried to move the stone
So heavy from its history of shame and blood and bone

Gather the hands to move the stone
Gather the hands to move the stone
Sing it up to the Heavens
Let it rain down on us all…”

This work is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas and has been sealed with varnish, comes ready to hang and with a Certificate of Authenticity.


In the photos, where the painting is shown mounted on a wall, these are purely for illustrative purposes. You should review the dimension of the artwork to be sure the work suits your needs.
