This body of work explores the links between Indigenous cultural heritage, environment and aesthetic traditions of artists from western Arnhem Land.
The artists represent a unique group of painters and print makers who have maintained the distinctive practise associated with the traditions of rock art painting in western Arnhem Land and the knowledge it purveys. The artists, many of whom are now deceased, include some of the great practitioners of Kunwinjku art including Graham Badari, Bardayal (Lofty) Nadjamerrek (dec), England Banggala (dec), Solomon Girrabul (dec) and Ezarahia Kelly.
The Stone Country of western Arnhem Land also known as the plateau country adjoins Kakadu National Park. The rocky outcrops of the escarpment dominate the landscape while adjacent flood plains, permanent rivers and billabongs are abundant with life of countless species of animals and plants.

This remote location combines the challenges of conceptualising and creating art in relative isolation, while drawing inspiration from the unique geography of the landscape of my daily life.
