Artist: Andrea Bates
Patjarr Story – 2018
Painting – 305mm x 381mm: acrylic on canvas
This painting is about Andrea’s mothers and grandmother’s dreaming, associated with different sites in Patjarr. The rockhole at the centre is representative of the community and the place where people would stop to drink on their travels through contry. Andrea has also painted the Tjilkamarta (echidna dreaming) place and the lake west of Patjarr. These remain important dreaming sites for the people of Patjarr.
