First prize – THE MESSENGER 

by KIRSTIE PAGE

Midnight to Dawn Art Union gives you the chance to win a very special work of Art: The Messenger by Kirstie Page. This artwork has been commissioned by recognised International artist to manifest her version of the Anzac spirit called -  "The Messenger" .

The Secret Story of the Art

My name is Kirstie Page, a Brisbane based mixed media artist. I’m honoured to have been commissioned to paint a special artwork in support of Trek 2 Health. 

The artwork I’ve chosen to paint for Trek 2 Health is titled “The Messenger”. The painting is a very personal piece for me to create as the military has been an important (and life altering) part of the lives of my loved ones. My father is a Vietnam Veteran. My brother served in the Army Reserves. My Grandfather served in Borneo during World War Two and my Great Uncle served (and survived) Gallipoli. 

Having multiple generations of my family serving in the armed forces means that this is a cause genuinely close to my heart. I acknowledge all service personnel’s service and sacrifice both past and present: for me, my loved ones, our community, our country and other nations around the world. 

In this spirit, my artwork was created to be a fusion of mixing the past and the present. I consider we are shaped by what comes before us, what is in front of us and what lies ahead. 

A pigeon features as the central symbol. The messenger. Historically, pigeons were used in service to convey important information during times of conflict. Doves are also symbolically associated with peace. 

This bird is in flight, however whether it is taking off or about to land is open to your interpretation. Attached to the bird’s foot is a small message featuring one word: “HOLD”.

Hold the line. Hold each other. Hold on. Only you will know its meaning. For me, it changes. 

The border surrounding the bird was inspired by the Australian Army’s Rising Sun Badge. A full circle, it represents light, life, strength and service. 

An open hand of a veteran features, extending upwards toward the bird and the light emitted by the rising sun. The fingers are outstretched, the palm of the hand gingerly turning towards being open. It invites connection, even tentative and however fleeting it may be. 

Poppies abundantly feature, reminiscent of the fields in Northern France during World War One and representing the immeasurable sacrifices made by all who served in all wars and conflicts. My sincere hope is that these elements that together comprise this artwork conveys a feeling of heartfelt acknowledgement and recognition, support, connection and hope. If so, I have achieved my aim.
