Barbara Weir

Title: My Country, size 90 x 120 cm.


Dreaming:  In this painting, Barbara has evolved the depiction of the ancient stories of the place of her birth and that of her mother, Minnie Pwerle. While many of the creation stories, places, ceremonies and sacred symbols depicted in Minnie's paintings are present, Barbara lives regularly on country and imprints cultural and visual aspects of her relationship with the land and her culture in her work.  Her style is highly and openly detailed and shows greater vibrancy while still employing the fine dotting technique she originally adopted to deliberately obscure the details and places of her mother's life story.
