Thelma Beeton (Palawa), Mob of Brothers and Sisters

Incl. tax

synthetic polymer paint on canvas, 2023


This painting is about my Brother Bois and Sister Girls. I love them all so much. I really would be lost without their support. Especially through the hard times. We always have the best laughs.


Artist Bio:

Thelma is a Palawa woman with family ties to Cape Barren Island off the north-east coast of Tasmania. She grew up in Swan Hill, a small town on the Murray River in the Loddon Mallee region. Most of Thelma’s work is inspired by her totem, the Tasmanian Emu. A former graffiti artist, she first started creating work with The Torch in 2016 and has developed a unique painting style using bold, often primary coloured backgrounds with 2D depictions of emus. Thelma has a dedicated practice and has recently been exploring incorporating landscapes into her scenes. She loves connecting with her culture including researching the practice of mutton-birding, a traditional hunting method for Aboriginal Tasmanians.
