Looking for a stunning piece of art to create a cultural space of your own?
'Dragonfly Takes Flight' is a series of paintings created in May 2020 to represent the start of a new season in the top end, and new beginnings as we emerge from a time of slow down.
“Dragonflies take flight”
The cold dry season wind blossom enough to dry up the rain from the earth. Enough to dry up and crack the dirt to wake up and warn the dragonflies that they will be hunted soon from the big fat yellow goannas. They take flight and move in search for a river to stay coloured and cool. Find a new camp along the river banks to stay safe.
