Kimberley Termite Mound

“I live on an isolated red dirt road, a savannah surrounded by boab trees, termite mounds and an expansive marshland that stretches to the infamous King Sound. This artwork depicts one of the many Kimberley termite mounds found along the roadside on Nyikina County between Derby township and Mowanjum Community. To create the artwork, I covered the metal sheet using natural, locally sourced pigments which I hand made into paint. I then scratched back into the painted surface to create marks drawn from the West Kimberley landscape.”
