Perspective of Country, January 2019, Cooee Art PaddingtonStory
The community of Ampilawatja made a conscious decision not to paint 'altyerr' dreaming stories, the artists paint their country where those stories sit.
I paint so my kids will learn about their country. I like painting because it reminds me of my country and where the bush medicine and bush tucker grow and where we go hunting.
