About the Painting
Circles represent connections in our culture, when beginning to make the start of a weaving basket, it is quite often a messy round coaster of dried grasses and wool, it’s not until later that the basket often will take shape, the bigger weaving circle at the bottom resembles when the basket is ready to take shape, basket weaving connects us back to a old tradition from long ago, today it is still practiced and is connecting back to self and back to the ways of the old.
About the Artist
Kaya I’m a whadjuk Nyungar artist Born in Subiaco Perth western Australia, and raised in Ngaruawahia New Zealand from Tainui Decent on my dad’s side.
I’ve always found that by participating in arts mainly painting and sculptures and weaving it presents an opportunity to develop and provide freedom of individuality .. allows the artist to portray meaning and passion that is often buried deep within and begins the journey into healing and setting a connection to today’s world while taking into account the journey that has already been travelled .
I like to learn from my elders the traditional ways in which they would create art to tell stories and add my own twists on things to retell my own stories for future generations to come.
