The works demonstrate a framework of an Indigenous understanding of the world and at the same time reveal the dynamic of what constitutes contemporary Aboriginal art practices. By using drawing as an immersive and embodied practice in the form of charcoal on paper and on a large scale, they are specifically landscapes that attempt to demonstrate the crucial role of “Country” (Land) and its importance to the foundations of Indigenous ideology and culture. By emphasising the process of drawing in tandem with the conceptualising of an analytical framework, a new way of looking at art and cultural practices has emerged.
