Kunyi June Anne McInerney: My Paintings Speak For Me

Kunyi June Anne McInerney, Mission Buildings with Dining Area, 2017, acrylic on canvas. On loan from the Migration Museum, a division of the History Trust of South Australia (Image courtesy of the artist)

Kunyi June Anne McInerney draws upon childhood experiences as a member of the Stolen Generations in the Oodnadatta Children’s Home during the 1950s. Kunyi’s vibrant paintings document her memories of the strict life with other mission kids who became her only family. Kunyi’s paintings and stories reveal an often-invisible part of Australian history, exploring the experiences of cultural loss, separation from family and finding fun times amongst hardship.
