oil on canvas

In Songlines - Living to Fish, as described by historian Bill Gammage, Aboriginal peoples farm without fences and are depicted in the bush settings as canoeists, fisherman and hunters.Songlines - Living to Fish describe the everyday reality and ongoing cultural practice of survival and navigation on the waterways of eastern Australia. Using an evocative panoramic landscape format, where images, lines and symbols are used to encode traditional knowledge and storytelling in abstract and conceptual ways, she interweaves charming vignettes of traditional life, paying homage to such practices that were pursued well into the nineteenth century.
