Sally Harrison's Dot Paintings

In 1949. My 14 year old mother, crippled with polio, was raped by a white man. The Authorities declared us 'neglected children' & exiled my mother to the far north. I was placed at Bomaderry Mission,100 miles south of Sydney.

This was the Bedrock of My Life, instilling Honesty, self discipline, self respect, self reliance & Love of Goodness in me In The Beginning.There was No dishonesty, No shirking of responsibilities, No foul language, No lies & No double standards. I could not have had a better start. The were The Virtues that CONTROLLED Me.

I Fell into a Dark World of Chaos when I was adopted by White 'Children Of A Lesser God', who tore out all The Good implanted in me & replaced it with Lies & Illusions.They destroyed My Mind & Life with their words & the worst forms of physical abuse, Roasting me in The Fires of Hell &.Feasting on my pain. When I Left 'home' at 19, my 'mother' told me I was the hardest @#@# she'd ever known.

Because I possessed Natural INSIGHT & AWARENESS, I Refused to Show Fear or cry in the face of her perversity, Making Her More Determined To Break My Spirit - but she FAILED.. Perverse means 'Persistent or Obstinate In What Is Wrong - Wicked'. This is what Empowered Me to withstand the Inexorable Pressure exerted by these Immoral Role-Models & Care-Givers, who besmirched MY Values & My Good Name. I vowed never to be like them, but THEIR Shadows HAUNTED Me for years.

For 30 years, I struggled to Understand my Brain Functions after I was abruptly cut off from My Natural AWARENESS & INSIGHT as a Left-Handed Aboriginal forced to assume a False ID + Entity that demanded I be less than what I was. Words cannot express the Chaos caused by The Enforced use of my right hand, which SPLIT My Soul in two. Most people don't know that the letter N, is the Ancient Sumerian word 'EN', meaning LORD, The Title of A Powerful Priest-King throughout All Near Eastern Cultures. When we say 'enforced' we are saying "A Priest Forced Me".

I was left mentally shattered & blinded, totally confused by the contradictions that pervade white society, but ANU, My Spirit of Life carried me when Little 6 yr old Sally, My Soul & Servant, finally FELL with a great sigh & DIED. In 1992, I moved to The West, learning to dot paint & come to terms with my life as a person of Two Cultures with No place in either. Experience has taught me that painting mirrors life. You face exactly the same challenges. Mental Discipline, Honesty & Observation create Order out of Chaos. Art is Self-Imposed Mental Discipline that Empowers You to Disconnect from The World & Enter the Vast Silence of The Void in God's EYE as a Little Pupil. Thus I've learnt I can live without Church & State & I am Free of this Stone Age Animus called my mind, MARRIED to a Graeco-Roman Persona - The creation of my 'Superiors'. Persona is Latin for mask, meaning an actor playing a part in a Play. Disguised in my Mask, I was forced to act out a Tragedy scripted by a 'born-again' Greek Playwright called Aeschylus, idolized by The Elite of Society. The Talons of My Totem, Aquila, The Wedge-Tailed Eagle, 'Re-Enacted' the FATE of Aeschylus by dropping a tortoise from A Great Height onto his bald pate, smashing his skull & Killing him - Again.

You NEED to BE CREATIVE when you DECIDE TO KILL YOUR DEMONS. I got very angry with MYSELF & Stopped being Meek & Mild Like A Little Child. In Righteous FURY, Like 'A MIGHTY MAN OF OLD', I DISMANTLED The Alphabet & tore off all ITs Little 'arms & legs'. I UPROOTED This Tree of Knowledge & TORE IT LIMB FROM LIMB as IT & THE SOW'S EAR, did to ME.

I Cast IT into EARTH'S CORE to Burn for ETERNITY For Making a MONKEY out of Me, BINDING ME Hand & Foot, & casting Me into The 'Abyss' to DROWN in an Ocean of FILTH.

Because IT has NO Soul, IT can't Re-Animate ITself, or Re - Ani - Mate, ie: Re = Egyptian Sun god aka Babylonian Marduk, God of War + Ani = Egyptian Priest-King & Scribe of Thoth or Hu = Authoritative Speech, Mated to MAN.
