Provenance Artists of Ampilatwatja, NT Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery, NSW
Exhibited: Songlines Coo-ee Christmas 2012, Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery, NSW Sydney December 2012 Story Kindy Ross grew up painting with her family Her grandmother Lilly Morton, her mother Jessie Ross, her great aunty Daisy Moss and her cousin Levina are some of Ampilatwatja's finest artists. Both Lilly and Daisy were in the original batik movement in Utopia over 23 years ago.
Kindy has a great knowledge of the land, bush medicines and bush tucker. Her paintings display the terrior of her beloved country. When various bush medicines are out in flower, or after a bushfire for example, Kindy tells the story of her land at that time. Her flowing movement of the layered landscapes and fine detail create a movement and life to Kindy's paintings, you almost feel as though you're walking with her through this great open and quiet country.
The artists of Ampilatwatja made a conscious decision not to paint â€˜altyerr' dreaming stories. The artists paint their country where those stories sit.
Kindy has painted the bush flowers that grow here in Alyawarr country. Some of which are also used as bush medicine.
