DESCRIPTION

Abounding with symbols of hope, loss, inclusiveness, detention, escape, light and darkness, the only spotlight that can be shone on this elusive artist is one created by sunlight.
The rainbow symbolizes changing world views towards same sex marriage, our governments views are damaging to young and old alike. With youth suicide at all-time highs, acceptance, tolerance love for all, and equal legal rights no matter what your sexual orientation, must be paramount.
The barbed wire represents a crown of thorns, detention, and hope. Australia continues to have one of the strictest immigration detention regimes in the world. The broken fence is symbolic for hope, the breaking down of barriers, freedom of choice, acceptance and liberty for all.
