This vibrantly coloured artwork captures the diverse beauty of my country, Wanaruah country (Parai), located in the Hunter Valley of NSW Australia.   A land, of mountains and valleys, richly interlaced with vibrantly colored rock forms dramatic in color and rich in cultural significance.

Moving horizontally across the canvas are bold, highly textured flowing lines, holding a twofold meaning:

  • Representing our peoples connection to country through use of rich early ochre tones, used for corroboree and rock art,
  • Our clans songlines (Borii), depicting walking trails, pilgrimage and trade routes interlaced across Wanaruah country.
  • Closely linked vertical lines across the centre of the work depict represent the generations past, present and future and the passing on our cultural knowledge across time.
