This painting is delivered stretched and ready to hang to any Australian address.
As is the case with many of the female western desert painters, Barbara employs the creamy thick textures that have such a tactile quality. They do, after all, represent the earth where everything begins and ends. The traditional painters such as Barbara are very conscious of the skin of the earth. It is an interesting exercise to watch her paint as Barbara has mastered the flow and juddering, joined dotted line which is also characteristic of the paintings from Balgo.
