  • Martuwarra is my river country; this painting is all about the Fitzroy River which flows down through Noonkanbah where I grew up. Kalpurtu (creator serpent-type being) also live in these rock holes and he made all them fish. When the wet season comes the river floods. After the flood and the water goes down it leaves billabongs full of fish and cherabun. Water lilies grow in the billabongs and the fish hide under them.
