Mother and Child with Australian Native Flowers (Version 1)

Gouache stencil painting on black paper. 2010
The group of artists in SE Qld. known as Visionaries took as the theme for an exhibition at the Australian Catholic University and then at Mueller College, Rothwell, in 2010, a contemporary response to any of the religious art in the Queensland Art Gallery. In responding to “Madonna and Child surrounded by roses”, 17th century Dutch painting by Jan van Kessell the Elder (the flowers) and the Circle of Simon de Vos (the Madonna and Child), I have drawn upon work that I have done over several years as I searched for ways of expressing the seasons of the Christian year within an Australian setting. Mother and Child are depicted as indigenous Australians. Across the centuries, artists have re-interpreted the biblical stories into their own cultural and ethnic settings, thus reflecting the universality of the Gospel message.

Geraldine Wheeler is a retired minister of the Uniting Church in Australia who has been using images as visual interpretation of scripture to complement preaching and teaching in words and as a means of entering into prayer and meditation for several decades. She has drawn, painted and made prints from school days, studying art at high school and taking adult classes with artists such as Clem Forbes, Wim de Vos   and Michael Winters. She is three times winner of the Maleny Art Awards Christian Theme section and is founder/co-ordinator of the ecumenical group of artists in S. E. Queensland, Visionaries. Her Ph. D. thesis (ACU 2004) examined the possibilities for the role of visual art within the theological understanding of the Reformed Tradition of Christianity.
