Reflections of My Country by Duncan Smith

“My Country gives me inspiration to paint; also my family and community.”

Duncan Smith OAM presents an exploration of Wiradjuri Country, using traditional ochre and acrylic paints on board. His works reflect rivers, waterholes, meeting places, animals, trees, grinding stones, artifacts, scar tree patterns and land patterns. Before painting, Wiradjuri people travel throughout their Country to collect ochre. After gathering the ochre, they grind it to a fine powder with a grinding stone, then add water and a binding agent, such as wood glue, to help it stick to the surface it is being applied to. Ochre colours are traditionally white, red, yellow and brown, and paint brushes and sticks are used to paint dots. The exhibition includes single works as well as sets of three, with every painting different to each other.
