  • About

    Art Centre documentation for this work states:
    "The name Iinchan is where this puppy was born. There is a big lake and a big salt plane out that way. Over the next ridge, you come across Bullyard Station. Iinchan is part of our traditional Country. Those wild dogs live around there. They have been there from the beginning."
