This elegant painting is My Country by Anna Petyarre. Anna is the niece of Emily Kame Kngwarreye and daughter of artists Glory Ngale. My Country is a representation of the salt lakes of her homeland. The large circles are waterholes created after heavy rain. What is so mesmerising about this work is the way Anna uses minimal colours, predominately black and white to form intricate, beautiful surfaces that glimmer just like the salt plains she paints. The use of black and white also means this painting will look great in any surrounding, from bold coloured walls to a sleek minimal interior.
