Europeans measured time linearly – hours, days, weeks, months etc. To Aboriginal culture time was continuous so the circles are representing time that is collectively never-ending. The circular patterns symbolise the Dreaming or Creation, the now or present time and the future or future generations.
The Artist: Colin Jones was born in 1947 in Queensland Australia, and is of Kaladoon and Nunuckle tribal descent. As a young boy, Colin learned to paint from his grandfather. Colins multi-layered dot paintings tell the stories of his ancestral lands, where the rain forest, rivers and land connect. In these depictions, there are small foot and hand prints telling the stories of Aboriginal people roaming the land.
