This piece is the sister artwork to 'The Dry'. The two go hand in hand; we can not have one without the other.

Across 2022 and 2023, I painted the biggest artworks I've ever done. This one and its partner took me around 9-10 months to finish, adding small details every few weeks between my usual work. Normally, I don't paint like this. I usually finish a piece in just a few days, working on it nonstop. But these two pieces are different. They needed more of my time and attention because of the intricate details. They are some of my most important work, they take me back home to Country as a kid. I LOVE these pieces!

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.
