Sunrise to Sunset
Artist Statement: This piece I did with country in mind , that dry season birak, I worked into this piece aspects of the land around toodyay which I used to wander as a child. The long grasses, the water is still there but not on the surface, waterholes dried up and the colors.....suggesting the heat but also celebrating the colors of moodjar. The tree that flowers in this time. I touched it with gold to bring out the texture.
