Judith-Rose Thomas Tracks 2002
Mixed media 1215 x 1215mm SOLD
This painting is made from modelling compound and impasto gels on wood. It depicts the tracks around Tasmania
that the Aborigines made prior to the colonial years. The tracks give a lace effect depicting femininity and the
women in the tribe. The ochre colour is a reference to Manalargenna - the chief of the Cape Portland (Ben
Lomond) tribe. It also shows the spiritual connotation by the use of negative space.
