Hand painted by Ryhia AKA NARDURNA 👩🏽‍🎨

Across 2022 and 2023, I have been painting my largest artworks to date, three of them. This is the first that I have finished. It took me about 9-10 months to do, adding little bits here and there every few weeks between my regular work. Normally, I don't paint this way. I generally finish a piece within a few days, working on it solidly, but this and the other two felt like they needed real time. They are some of my most important work, they take me right back home to Country as a kid. I LOVE this piece!

The Story

It’s coming into the wet season at home, its called the build-up. I hope we get a good lot of water to wash away the dust, fill the waterholes, rivers and creeks, Country needs to have its fill of freshwater. We go fishing to catch barra in the McArthur River and make sure we have a good supply of food, when the rain comes, Borroloola and all the surrounding stations get cut off. We all make sure everyone in the community has food and fresh water. When the rain comes it floods and the crocodiles move, they sometimes go into freshwater rivers and creeks, there isnt a lot of swimming going on, but one day mum, dad and one of my grannies took us for a drive to a place where the water was running over the road; it was car tire deep there was fish trying to swim against the current and little crabs which I thought was weird cause we were a long way from the ocean. We went swimming here, we were safe.

Shipping Policy

Materials

My prints are giclée fine art grade printed on either textured cotton rag (paper) or poly-cotton canvas, only the best HDX archival inks are used, guaranteed to last over 100 years.

Cotton rag prints have a 35mm white border on each face, the size listed is the overall dimension including the border.

Canvas prints are stretched ready to hang, this means the canvas is stretched over an internal stretching frame with a wire fitted to the back so you can remove it from the box and hang it on your wall.

External decorative frames can be added to either cotton rag or canvas prints.

Maps are printed on poster paper perfect for framing yourself or laminating.

Dimensions & Framing info (if applicable)

Custom made frames are made from sustainably sourced FSC certified Tasman oak or painted pine sourced from Malaysia or Indonesia. Each frame is hand made specifically for each piece.

Cotton Rag Paper prints receive an acrylic "Art Glass" a beautiful anti-reflective glazing that provides 70% UV filtering and eliminates almost all reflections, we use this as it is shatter-proof and lightweight, so it is fantastic for shipping and also installing into areas where safety is paramount.

Paper prints are wrapped in a shadow box frame adding around 30mm to each face.

Canvas prints are sold stretched and ready to hang, if you choose framing you will receive a floating frame which adds around 15mm to each face.

For more information on frames visit the Left Bank Art Group framing page.
