Six monumental photographs capture the ephemeral act of Painting on Country with tutu (pigment), a material used ceremonially to paint on the land or the body. In the words of artist Keith Stevens:
We are making this work because we want to be sitting on our country so we can look after it. White-fellas are seeing all our work on canvas but we want people to see the places that really are this dreaming.
