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.
Daisy has painted her Mother's country, "Kngwarraye" country. Kngwarraye is one of the four main skin names of Ampilatwatja.
Bush medicine, goanna and many other traditional bush foods are found here. This is where Daisy's traditional laws lie.
Daisy paints her country to keep her country strong.
