Pansy Napangardi Bush Banana Dreaming & Father & Mother's Country 1986
Acrylic on cotton 1220 x 600mm $25000
This painting was a gift to Pansy's partner Dean’s Mother in 1986. Every year after that Pansy would visit and add a bit more to it. It started as a simple red ochre bush banana dreaming painting and every year it was added to. This work was completed about 10 years after it was started.
This painting started as a bush banana dreaming with a simple motif in red ochre. Pansy kept on working on it and it evolved into more of a complex painting. It details two separate histories; one from Pansy’s father’s side and one from her mother’s side.
