Dreamtime Travellers presented by Bleach*

Rick Roser

Wander Justins Park to encounter artist Rick Roser’s giant spirit figures, seemingly existing in another dimension, yet visible for a time across the parkland.

Six decorated trees, upside down –– branches underground, roots in the air –– point to a magical time: a Dreamtime. These mammoth, mystical beings are like the figures we fleetingly see in the shadows during long walks on tribal country to learn about cultural heritage. Take time to recline under the floating ceiling and watch as strips of hibiscus bark, weighted with shells and painted with ochre, sway in the seaside breeze –– a tribute to giant spirits passed.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Professional artist and educator Rick Roser has been performing fire-making and smoking ceremonies at Woodfordia Inc events for over 20 years. From a young age, Rick witnessed his First Nations people’s plight and resolved to share in their struggle for cultural and physical survival.
