Selina Pula Teece, View of Country, 567-18
Acrylic on linen
Selina was born “out bush” in the Central Australian Desert. Her community made a conscious decision not to paint ‘altyerr’ dreaming stories, the arsts paint their country where those stories sit.
This painng shows the layered landscape of Alyawarr, Central Australia. Knowing your country is an important part of living in a remote community like Ampilatwatja. Knowing when and where to go hunng and gathering, knowing where there is 'soakage' (where you can dig for water), travelling with family for ceremonies, and maintaining a connecon with the land.
"This is my country, my view of country."
