In the background of her paintings, Barbara often depicts the temporary campsites that her people made as they trekked across the country in search of food or the coolamans used by the women to collect wild fruits and berries. She sometimes shows the form of a woman’s body adorned with ochre pigments collected from the land in preparation for the ceremonies. Small or large semi-circular shapes represent hills and valleys, and the lines of dry river beds and streams wind across the canvas as they do at Utopia. Learn more here.
