Gumnut and Galah Feather Flowers – 2021
Paintings – Acrylic on Canvas – 30 x 30 cm (pre-stretched)
Gulf country women love to create decorative craft items from the bounty of land and sea materials that they collect out bush around Borroloola. This painting celebrates a traditional craft item that has been handed down from mother to daughter – flowers made from gumnuts and feathers from the local Galah.
