We call this a ‘Bogeye’ where I come from – Shingle-Back Lizard elsewhere, and occasionally ‘Blue Tongued Lizard’
Inspired by the vivid Autumn colours of Mildura – this painting took about a week to complete, and I played around with a bit of time-lapse along the way – reckon it looks ok.
This painting explores the relationship between the Darling and all the surrounding landscape. The background image is the ‘property layer’ for a large swathe of Western NSW, from the dis-tributary streams of the Birrie, Narran, Bokhara and Culgoa through to the point where the Darling intersects with the Murray.
An early go at capturing an artwork on film – Jeremy Cumpston filmed and edited this work.
‘Two stories in conversation’ was how this work was described to me, I love that and it succinctly captures up the key theme of the work, a painting of my place – Bourke.
