This painting by Kathleen Petyarre is "My Country". Her abstracted interpretation of the desert sands and the tiny imprints of the mountain devil lizard. The work is created using small bunches of bamboo skewers applied rhythmically across the canvas, dipped intermittently into the paint to create the variety of shape and size ie the miniscule dots.
