Artist's Description

A Work from “Words I Learnt From The English Class”
This piece says “Mooree (the Boree)” which is a hypocorism or ‘pet name/nick name’ but these names to a non-white are usually to do with your race, religion etc. “Boree” is a derogatory word for Aboriginal and is used to remind me of where I stand within the schoolyard.
