Charlene Carrington Texas Country 2003
Natural ochre & pigment on canvas
1200 x 900mm

Charlene is painting the country that her relatives and family come from - Texas Downs Station. Texas Downs station is a place full of caves, waterholes and red hills. Charlene thinks this country is beautiful, there is plenty of water and many rockpools, creeks and rockholes. This the land as she remembers it. Charlene often goes out bush with her children and her grandmother, Betty Carrington and Betty's husband, Patrick Mung Mung. Charlene has used the river red gum as the binder for this work - in a very traditional but now rarely used manner.
