Navigation by the Stars and more art by Arone Meeks

Navigation by the Stars
43 x 64 cm (h x w)
AUD $ 770

This work is based on navigation by the stars, the boat being both a symbolic vehicle to travel back to the dreaming in connection with country, spirit and place.

Contained within this vessel are elements of my childhood – the figure with dilly bag, boomerangs and a guiding light (far right). The central figure is catching his song to guide the journey. Also contained in this boat is an endangered Cassowary. These designs, like those below the boat in the water, are location markers. They talk of the dugong seagrasses, irukandji jellyfish, sea cucumbers and the spawning coral.

Other key elements to the work are the different stages of personal growth through my years as a painter and printmaker and my relationship to place.
