Shimmering constellations of fruit emerge in these paintings from tiny points of colour that are meticulously worked into shifting layers that evoke the desert landscape. Through their reference to ceremonial body painting and their invocation of the continuum of the Dreaming, they present both a spatial and temporal circularity that acts as a metaphor for the relationship between the local and the universal. The joyful rhythms of the canvas reflect Gladdy’s pride in passing down the story of the bush plum, as her grandmother did before her, and her keenly felt joy of renewing her tradition.
