Elizabeth "Queenie" Giblet Whispering Under Night Stars 2018
Acrylic on Belgian linen
400 x 400mm

We did not have a lot of modern electricity when I was growing up at old site. At night, we sat around the fire. We made fire spots around our house. Some spots in front and some spots at the back. Some fire spots on the sandy beach too but away from the crocodiles. On some nights, the wind would blow stronger and you can hear the crackling sound of the red hot fire wood and fire sparks shooting up to the sky. We would all talk so loud and whenever the fire crackles with a loud noise, we would all lower our voice and whisper. The fire helps us to see the stars in the sky too.
