Kaylene Whiskey Come see Kaylene

acrylic on found poster

96 x 59 cm

This painting is on an old tourism poster that reminded me of the creeks, trees and rocks from my home, Indulkana, in the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, South Australia. I painted myself standing in the creek. I’m singing out to my friends, ‘Come and see Kaylene!’ So, Wonder Woman has flown in to visit me and Dolly Parton is playing a song for us from up in the tree. I love my Country and my culture, and I paint the plants and the animals I see in the bush, as well as ideas from comic books, TV, movies and music.
