Songs from the Bungle Bungles
This work is from my most recent red earth series produced during 2022. The patterns and shapes in this work are inspired by the striking banded domes of the Bungle Bungles, a major landmark found in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The domes are made of sandstone, believed to have been deposited around 360 million years ago. The lines and circles, cracks, dots, dashes and squiggles, stripes and spirals, tessellations and meanders featured in this and my other artworks have all been informed by and represent abstract interpretation of the many unique shapes and patterns of the land observed in the Australian outback over the years. I regard the unique and exquisite landmarks of the Australian outback as metaphors for endurance and life.
Can be hung as a standalone work or combined with other works from the red earth series as a diptych, triptych, quadriptych, or polyptych.
