Global Mobility Immigration Lawyers Scholarship Submission: by University of Technology Sydney student Tarren Sohier
Title: Australian Immigration Lawyer
Material: Oil on wood
Size: 20” x 20”
The work focuses on genetic diversity by mapping the DNA profile of a future Australian immigration lawyer. The title “Australian Immigration Lawyer” responds to the topic, “Immigration lawyers acting for asylum seekers are ‘unAustralian’” by highlighting the genetic diversity of all Australians. Its simple representation eliminates the focus on nationality and refocuses on the roots of humanity, with the intent of challenging discriminatory behavior.
