Description
Billabong Warrior is inspired by the abundance of turtles I saw on a day trip with Pudakul Aboriginal Culture Tours. The light grey silhouette of paint layered over the top of the composition creates an interesting optical effect, so half of the piece appears submerged underwater, much like the turtles drifting through the billabong. This is further reinforced through the visual contrast between solid blocks of colour and gestural, loose applications of paint that appear like colourful puddles on the canvas. Finally, the title of this work reinforces the turtle as a symbol of life and strength, as it has survived since time began, carving out its path in the billabong.
