My Country, 2017
Acrylic on linen
90 x 150 cm
This painting depicts the geological formations and the striations etched into the landscape. Petyarre paints from a topographic perspective and only using fine white dots she captures the beauty of movement in the land.
The work references imagery from her ancestral country, detailing various landmarks such as ceremonial sites and waterholes. She limits her colour palette which creates a sense of perspective and depth to the work.
