River Country Art Print by Maria Watson-Trudgett. An abstract take on a landscape, this Indigenous Aboriginal artwork shows rolling green hills among a field of flora and fauna. A river flows along the centre, underneath the warm rays of the sun. Such an organic placement of lines and dots portrays the constant movement of nature itself. A monotone palette moves from dark to light green, making this a versatile piece. Bila and Nguram-bang, are words from Wiradjuri language, meaning river and country. Wiradjuri people are river people. Growing up by the rivers was my way of life and were an important element to my familys survival and cultural connection. My paintings express my connections to my Aboriginal culture, in contemporary expressions of now!
