This unique insight into the numinous landscape of the Kimberley region and the human relationships and events that have become part of its history, celebrates the artist's love of his spirit country, The Great Sandy Desert, and his deep connection to the landscape of his youth and adulthood. This mysteriously restful and yet haunting image gives us a window into the artist's spiritual eye. In his true minimalist style, the Canning Stock Route, a black line bordered by white dots, surrounds and frames a richly vivid image of the Great Sandy Desert. Rover indicated that the sparse ethereal washed ground created in broad brushstrokes depicted sand patterns and changing lights in the vast desert landscape.
