Gladys Roberts's - Ngayuku Ngura-My Country
Glady's paintings are inspired by the traditional country around Fregon on the APY Lands. The contemporary interpretation of this vast, energetic and vibrant landscape creates a narrative of landforms and colour. Typical features are the long ridges of low sandhills. Rock-holes-irregular, circular shaped depressions in the rocks - fill with water when it rains.
The sandhills are interspersed by vast, flat plains of spinifex and native grasses which are criss-crossed by dry creeks lined with river red gum eucalypts. The patchwork effect of the land and the creeks which flood during heavyrain is changeable. The intense 'red' of the earth,however is enduring.
