STORY - Meeting at the River
This painting came about after Caitlyn visited Menindee with her parents. When she came home she was really missing country and wanted a painting to represent the special lunch she had with her parents by the Barkaa (river.) Every time she looks at this painting, she is transported back to this day and time on Country. The mountains have a dual meaning of representing the hills of Mutawintji and to represent strength and resilience. Other symbols used include desert shrubs, cracked earth, people sitting along the river and campsites. Caitlyn would also like to acknowledge the Kaurna people as the traditional owners of the land this piece was created on.
