in collaboration with Leanne Tobin

Djalgala Yarra translates to tree, embrace in the Darug language. The work is inspired by the shape, colour and history of the Sydney Red Gum, an iconic and magestic tree of the Sydney Area.

The work was created by the artists to contribute to a space of calm, contemplative wonder and further inspired by meditative breathing, to draw the viewer in with its hypnotic motion that is at once tranquil yet energetic.

These mosaics are a metaphor for the rich diversity of the patients, staff and visitors of Blacktown Hospital.

The images represent the Australian day light and flow from sunrise to the night sky. It gives continuity to the night sky represented by mosaics in the internal Hospital Street.

The seats’ images were developed in collaboration with local Nepalese and Bhutanese communities and students of Chifley College Shalvey Campus

Between Earth and Sky

Leanne Tobin

‘Between Sky and Earth’ welcomes all to Dharug land with the Dharug word Warami. The surrounding words are greetings from the many different nations within NSW.

The artwork welcomes visitors onto country and pays homage to Mother Earth and all she gives us. Mother Earth is personified as a woman; the giver of life and provider of all resources.

It is hoped that ‘Between Sky and Earth’ provides a safe, comforting and aesthetically healing space on the hospital grounds and extends a warm Dharug welcome to those who come here.
