Grass Seed Dreaming by Barbara Weir

July 05, 2016 1 min read

Grass Seed

The combination of soft feminine hues in this painting are hard to skip over. Featuring Matisse's Titanium White, splashes of Dioxazine Purple and Barbara's own pale skin-tone pink mix, its whispy vibes lend itself to grass blowing in the breeze. It depicts Grass Seed Dreaming, the artist's trademark design, however the grass is actually a small herb that doesn't grow much above the size of a tea cup.

Its most important quality, for Barbara's ancestors, were the copious amounts of small black seeds it produces. These are highly nutritious and a key ingredient in making damper (bread). As a result of its importance to the health of the community, its Dreamtime story was passed down over generations of Atnwengerrp people to promote the ongoing supply. 

This apartment sized piece measures 90cm x 30cm making it perfect (if we say so) for skinny walls such as in hallways that could do with a lift from a high profile artwork in soft hues.



Barbara Weir’s Grass Seed paintings are represented in a substantive amount of collections in Australia and overseas, and have been featured in numerous documentaries and exhibitions. You can read her bio for more information or more on the Grass Seed in the link below.
