Country by Delvine Petyarre
180cm x 60cm
Intricate white dots systematically map out Delvine's country just north of Australia's Eastern Desert. There are dry river beds, yam root systems beneath the ground and travelling tracks – both by car and foot - of her people.
Delvine dabs a bamboo satay stick into a pot of paint and uses this to create several to a dozen dots in one go.
This process creates areas of thicker consistency where dots appear larger, and others that are smaller and darker where the dots trail off. The resulting effect is a twinkling, dotted, three dimensional looking work of art.
