Serico’s (b.1949 Brisbane QLD – d.2008 Toowoomba QLD) bittersweet visual narratives are cleverly loaded with pathos, humour and tragedy. The limited-edition work on paper of the artist’s 1994 painting Toowoomba I “is about the settlement of Toowoomba. First the bullocks and the early farmers…The trackers are brought in from down south…The young men make a stand on the Table Top…They escape for a while, but the troopers bring them back in chains. The red sun is for the blood on the land, the people are dispossessed. All the local tribes are forced to march to Taroom. Some are sent to Woorabinda, Cherbourg, Baramba and mixed up with the Waka Waka people. Now the sun shines on the white man. The black people are gone but the land is waiting.” (The artist,1994). The 1995 painting Westerly Winds will be displayed, a rare opportunity to view an early work by this artist.
