Title: Budima (broken hearts)

Credit Line: Kerry Stokes Collection, Perth

This painting portrays the artist and her twin sister. ‘The main thing in art is to be truthful to the present and to honour the “truths” of the past! I like to steal the techniques from European culture and depict subversively the history experienced by me and my family.’
Julie Dowling, 2000
