ABOUT THE ARTWORK:

In Kampagee a dark background is interrupted by bright forms of electric green dotting outlined in crimson red. For Margaret Baragurra, the image evokes powerful memories of her country in the wet season, when rich colours abound and there is an abundance of food. Of the painting, the artist says:

“My country Kampagee, we been walking around, I been born there. I am little one walking around Nanarra. Lots of jila, warla (mud flat). Old people country blood country, sad one you know. He been lost there my uncle everyone been lost there my grandfather too.”
