“Art brings you back to the edge. It brings you to the spiritual and makes you a little careful. To explore this at a tatty age: I’m rich.”
‘ My painting is melting pot for my spiritual estate… the Aboriginal, the Kanak and the European…. At the same time it sings up the women of my tribal ancestry. Their belief in culture and their ingenuity gave us the solid groundwork that allowed us to adapt to the European world without loosing our self respect….my paintings are a homage to them and to the men who supported them.’
