Artwork title: “KUMANGKA” (Kaurna word meaning together)
Black and white hands at either end coming together to close the gap between Indigenous and non Indigenous people. The gap which divides the artwork in the middle can only be closed through cultural understanding, respect and recognition. The many other hands represent diversity and a nation coming together to support the cause.
The elements and symbols represent the land and sea. Many cultures sharing the same country with respect and recognition of the First Nations people.
Born in 1975, Allan Sumner is a descendent of the Ngarrindjeri people who come from the lower Murray and the lakes of the Murray River along the Coorong of South Australia. He is also a descendent of the Kaurna people from the Adelaide plains region and the Yankunytjatjara people from central Australia.
Since losing his father to cancer, Allan has had a passionate interest in Dreamtime Stories, spending valuable time with his Elders. Retracing ancient art forms, Allan communicates the stories, passed down from generation to generation, through his contemporary art pieces. Over the past three years his works have remarkably matured. Allan creates visually arresting landscape works employing earthy tones intertwined with cooler tones to represent rivers, lakes and the oceans that form patterns to provide a sense of movement.
Allan regularly collaborates with the Ochre Dawn team to create captivating artwork pieces for commercial purposes, including reconciliation action plans, annual reports, websites and promotional products.
