An artist that references the Australian landscape in her dimensional painted works. They are highly colourful and look almost like quilts, and so are quite relevant for my proposed Australian outback Ebb and Flow quilt.

I have moved away from my initial idea of circles to squares but I am drawn to circles like these and have used them previously. In this she references aboriginal dot painting to some extent which I alway find a bit fraught. I guess you are unlikely to inadvertently use aboriginal symbols that belong to the songlines of a specific indigenous group, but I still feel it’s difficult to distinguish yourself from indigenous art. Whilst appropriation is considered legitimate, it may be considered inappropriate to appropriate from indigenous works.
