|Artist statement|| |
The three words in the title are alternatives for what is commonly referred to as ‘the Dreamtime’. This painting shows an episode in the ‘Two Men’ saga, which crosses the continent. The Two Men were cousin-brothers, who travelled the country creating landscape features as they went. The two brothers are lying down, in a windbreak, like a cave. They travelled from the north. The Dreamtime happened first, when everything (landscape, species, law) was laid down. People (human beings) came along later.
