Spring Creek

"This is Spring Creek. This is a good place for bream fishing and there is a maiden spring here also."

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. His paintings are carefully observed topological maps of this region and involve aspects of traditional Ngarranggarni (Dreaming) stories as well as his own experiences in this country as a stockman and station hand.
