 Changing Faces is a symbolic portrayal of Australia’s Cultural Diversity.

The nations represented in this series of painted portraits include: Australian Gunai Kurnai, Afghanistan, Britain, China, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Lebanon, Myanmar, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Russia, South Sudan, Syria, Thailand.


The aim of this exhibition is to encourage social cohesion and seeks to prove that our differences are fewer than our similarities. At the heart of this work is the belief that if we embrace a society with foundations based on respect and tolerance to maintain peace and harmony, then we are better equipped to face the challenges of the future.


Thank you to Adaw, Adriaan, Aref, Chézahn, David, Elise, Eptesam, Gabriel, Kenneth & Terrylene, Laquon, Mamta & Verma, Murray, Nataly, Phakkamon, Regina, Rocky, Shahnaz and Van  for being participants in the project.
