Konstantina x Georgia Hill Artwork Statement

“From a very early age we were taught the breakdown between male and female philosophy. When the morning star (Venus) Yoolah, comes, that is after Yoolah appears in the sky until the sun rises, it’s women’s time: the men and the older kids leave the women perfectly alone; we don’t go near them. That gives the women of the clan time to look after young children and go down to the water for their practices. It was very organised. Even when I was a small child my grandmother used to do this. She’d go up and bathe in the ocean in those early hours of the morning and take me up because I was a small child. It was a respectful time; it was a beautiful time of peace and silence. You know, that pre-daylight, that pre-dawn when there’s just that glow to the east. We spoke softly. Then the sun would come up and bang, we were into the daily affairs and
the hustle and bustle of life.” - Dennis Foley

This concept speaks to ritual and space, where calm, contemplation, and connection begin. Hill’s ripped forms come to create a new perspective of the horizon and the early glow of daybreak, as Konstantina’s dot formations move and connect over ochre based purples, referencing flow and constellations.

Artist Bios

Konstantina (Kate Constantine)

Konstantina (Kate Constantine) is a proud Gadigal woman of the Eora nation and a neo- contemporary indigenous artist. She is re-imagining the traditions of her peoples’ dot painters and providing a modern narrative for all Australians to better understand First Nations People as part of the fabric of Australia.
As a descendant of the Gadigal people, she is passionate about her Language, Culture and histories, much of which have been lost, misplaced or manipulated since the dawn of colonisation. Through her extensive research Kate is truth telling the real histories of her people and is actively involved in revitalising the Gadigal language via her collaboration with Sydney University to breathe life into the original language of the Eora Nation.

Her artwork tells of these histories, connecting to Country, and directly relates the struggles, inspiration, challenges and daily turmoil she feels at being a mum, a storyteller, a creative, a woman and above all a connected Aboriginal person to the land, the animals and spirit of our Country into her modern contemporary take on a time honoured tradition of dot painting.

Using acrylics, ochre, natural pigments and sticks found on mother Earth she sits quietly for hours producing works on paper, canvas and at scale for public art projects. She now resides with her husband and three young children on Bundjalung Country where she is inspired by the nature that surrounds her and her sons.

Georgia Hill

Georgia Hill (b.1988) is a multidisciplinary Australian artist, specialising in type-based, monochromatic artworks and installations.

Hill combines text, textures of flora, geography and geology, and details of our architectural environments, to move from the facade to the canvas and explore shared moments of connection, repetition and reflection. Hill’s large-scale, abstracted works can be found across Australia and internationally throughout the USA, Europe, India, New Zealand and Indonesia.
