Lungarung

Weaver Jack primarily paints her traditional country, south of Well 33 on the Canning Stock Route. When she first started to paint, the outlines of the country were laid bare on the canvas, like a skeleton of the country. Slowly, Weaver reclaimed this country, dotting over it, loosely at first. She said these where her people walking all around that country, collecting mayi (bush food) and hunting for kuwi (meat). Slowly, the country merged with the people. For Weaver, she and her land are inseparable: they are the same.
