Painted last year, both artworks represent his grandparents and the rivers they are from.

The first, the grey painting, is titled the Clarence River. Cassar-Daley explains: “My grandfather has ties to the Clarence river. His mother was a Bundjalung woman our family are all deeply connected to that river, we swam, fished and camped on it all our lives.”

The second, the blue painting, is titled the Orana River. He explains: “My grandmother, being a Gumbaynggirr woman, was from the southern side of the Clarence. This river connects up to all the places we still visit to this day with our families. We still catch and eat turtles and fish there and our sense of belonging does not get any stronger than these rivers.”

Bidding for both paintings ends on Sunday, April 17 at 5pm AEST.
