Burst of Spring
‘Springtime is a beautiful blending of colours in our country . When it’s been raining, all the flowers come up in a pattern like a puzzle.’ The artist started this painting with a sponge laden with colours. She painted over this background with shapes made up of coloured dots. She then further defined this coloured pattern by working over it again with white dots, to bring the colours into relief. As in much aboriginal art, the artist has represented her country from an aerial perspective.
