Amanda ConwayJones

Ngarrindjeri artist Amanda Conway-Jones was born at Victor Harbor in South Australia in 1985. Her painting style is dot work and the bright colours from her coastal country hometown and the ocean are represented throughout her artworks. Amanda enjoys creating pieces that are inspiring and brighten people’s day with her choice of colours. Amanda’s Land Lines series represents country from an aerial view. For Aboriginal people, land has a spiritual and cultural connection that is deeply important to their identity and way of life. In this series Amanda has used a combination of cool ocean colours and warm earth colours…

The exhibition is the culmination of the last year’s work. View the ever-growing collection as you walk through more than 500 bottles of water, each with its own remarkable story. There…
