Helen TIERNAN 1952 -
oil on canvas
170 x 110 cm

Tiernan makes comment on the use of inland waterways and sea by Indigenous Australians in colonial times. Many paintings feature Aboriginal peoples fishing, including structures they built to facilitate food capture. Reinforcing Bruce Pascoe’s observation that Aboriginal people were not nomads, but farmers, is the subtle vignette of a dam made of rocks in Holding the Land – Fish Net.
