This piece is apart of the ‘Shades of Ochre’ collection.
It was only in April 2021 that Jade picked up the paint brush and started to produce this new style of artwork. Her dreaming is titled ‘Dreaming in my Grandmother’s Country’ which has been passed down to her by her Grandmother Barbara Weir. These paintings consist of loosely executed dots painted in linear patterns that resemble a carefully designed aerial view of her country ‘Atnwengerrp’.
This type of painting is very subtle in its method and appearance and one needs to search for the various motifs that Jade has incorporated in each piece. They are all titled “Dreaming in my Grandmother’s Country”, but each have slight differences and the different palettes illustrate the land at different seasons of the year.
