Michelle Possum

 

My Mother's Country, 2017

Acrylic on wood Acrylic  
90 x 90 cm

Michelle is painting the Dreamtime landscape of her country, the ancestral home of her grandmother Long Rose Nangala. She is illustrating the country after the rains and the women are foraging for bush tucker. Grasses, seeds, fruit and yams are illustrated. Bush wheat is shown and the creeks and trails that the women are following are shown. Areas of sand dunes, fire places and camp sites are present. The women are carrying coolamons and are gathering red ochre for making body paint. The viewer is invited to search the painting for clues as to its meaning just as the women themselves examine the desert landscape for food.
