Ngarrgooroon Texas Country

Churchill Cann was born and grew up on Texas Downs Station, northeast of Warmun, where he worked as a stockman for most of his life. Churchill's painting style is distinctive. He views the landscape aerially and maps out his country in soft, painterly marks. Churchill's paintings are carefully observed topological maps of this region. His paintings involve aspects of traditional Ngarranggarni (Dreaming) stories as well as his own experiences in this country as a stockman and station hand.
