๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฉต WOW! I loved working on this custom piece. What do you think?

ARTWORK DETAILS
Title | Ocean Journey
Medium | Acrylic on stretched canvas
Size | 100cm x 150cm
Catalogue Number | 7707
Date & Location Created | 14/06/2024
Port Lincoln, South Australia
Artist | Presten Warren
DOB | 07/01/2000
Tribe | Wirangu/Dieri/Kokatha/Mirning/Arabana

STORY & MEANING
"Ocean Journey" was commissioned to celebrate the love, unity and spirit of a family of three through the symbolism of three majestic whales exploring the ocean together.

The ocean, depicted in swirling hues of blues and whites, serves as both the setting and a metaphor for life's vast and unpredictable journeys. The interplay of light and dark blues mirrors the depths and shallows of the ocean, reflecting the highs and lows that the family navigates together.

The placement of sacred symbols signifies protection, guidance, and the enduring bond between land, sea, and family. This artwork asks you to delve into the stories of your own journeys, encouraging a sense of reflection, connection, and appreciation for the shared paths we travel.

In May, we embarked on a joint venture partnership with the Far West Coast Aboriginal Corporation to complete the Jacinth Ambrosia Aerodrome and Haul Road projects, an ongoing commitment to the repair and resealing of a vital piece of mining infrastructure in the state's Far West.

Pictured are two of our team (Dave Evans / Andy Perry) alongside Gareth Dudley from Far West Coast Aboriginal Corporation, all wearing work shirts that we had specially made (by the team at ACE Merch & Apparel) for this venture.

The beautiful artwork on these shirts, titled "Two Tribes," was created by Preston Warren from Painted Studios. A descendant of the Dieri and Wirangu nations, the original custodians of the northern regions of South Australia,This piece speaks to Prestonโ€™s connection to Country, illustrating the coming together of the Dieri & Wirangu nations through the natural landscapes of rivers, lakes, deserts, and tribal land boundaries.

We selected this artwork as we felt it best represents the collaboration between our "two tribes" and our commitment to inclusion and diversity.

We look forward to continuing to build strong partnerships and honouring the rich cultural heritage of the lands on which we work ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿค

๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›Watch the timelapse of me creating "Constellation" for GPC Asia Pacific's First Nations Strategy! Such a privelege to be involved in this project!

"Art is a uniquely powerful form of storytelling. As part of our GPC Asia Pacific First Nations Strategy launch, we commissioned a special artwork from Presten Warren, a 24-year old Indigenous artist and proud Wirangu/Dieri/Kokatha/Mirning/Arabana man. Prestenโ€™s artwork, โ€˜Constellationโ€™, forms the visual anchor of our First Nations Strategy, telling the story of our diverse community working together at Genuine Parts Company, how we lead and how we navigate our industry landscape. We invite you to see the creation story of Constellation come to life in this video.

My design on Kokatha Mining Services new truck really pops!

This truck delivers ore samples from BHP Carrapateena to laboratories at Port Augusta and Whyalla for analysis.

The delivery service operates 365 days a year, so there'll be plenty of opportunity to spot this amazing artwork on the road.

The design has a central theme of partnership, safety and working together on Kokatha land.

Can't wait to see it on the road!

Have you noticed this striking truck cruising around the metro south?

This service truck, now showcasing our Reconciliation Action Plan artwork developed by Presten Warren of Painted Studios, is the first of many that will be hitting the streets.

By incorporating the visual representation of First Nations peopleโ€™s profound connection to land and electricity, weโ€™re celebrating and promoting reconciliation.

This initiative is part of our 2024-2025 Reconciliation Action Plan, which also includes reconciliation education for our people and the launch of our Cultural Protocols and Guidelines on Welcome to Country and Acknowledgement of Country.

Weโ€™re committed to taking meaningful steps on our reconciliation journey and are proud of the progress weโ€™ve made. Read more about our commitment to reconciliation on our website: sapowernetworks.co/our-commitment-to-reconciliation
