Summary In this body of work Gilson relives her own story and in doing so her artwork gives further voice to her ancestors. The narratives within her artwork are personal but reflect the story of so many others. In spite of the shameful treatment historically meted out to Aboriginal peoples across Australia, Gilson’s artwork retains a positive element that inspires hope. She has created a platform from which to show others and future generations how to re-engage with culture and how to continue the yarning and their Dreaming through art practices.
