Ben Ward’s mystery paintings of tessellating triangles contrasting in various coloured ochres create a hypnotic and cryptic picture. As your eyes focus on the sharp triangular shapes, a landscape appears of rust coloured mountains, deep green valleys, meandering blue rivers and gushing waterfalls. Ward paints his Country, Bilbiging and Old Argyle Downs Station, south of Kununurra, using a unique iconography developed over the past three years.
