The artworks of Dr Hope O’Chin (Kabi Kabi /Gubbi Gubbi, Wakka Wakka, Koa, Gugu-Yalanji), known as Aunty Hope in her community, link back to her Mother’s Country of the Sunshine Coast and the Dreaming/Creation/Spiritual stories embedded within that place and within her.
The Saltwater Dreaming: Recent Works by Dr Hope O’Chin exhibition is a wonderful example of Aunty Hope’s generous creative and cultural sharing. The body of work links her People’s story of the first surfer – the Dolphin – to the current – the board surfers of the waves; and how both co-inhabit on the shores of her Country. This exhibition is a visual example of humans and other species working together to maintain the ecosystems of the coastal region.
