About the Art
Yam and Bush Tomato Dreamings by Paddy Stewart: This painting shows the Yam and Bush Tomato Dreamings. You can see the Yams and the small round berries of the Bush Tomatoes. The place associated with this Dreaming is west of Yuendumu. In the Dreamtine the people used to eat these fruits and vegetables, just as our old people lived off them. What I have painted here is the Dreamtime Yams and Bush Tomatoes. I painted them here for the children to see.
Narangga people on The Yorke Peninsula by Cedric Varcoe In 2015 Cedric received a grant from Arts SA for professional development workshops with Better World Arts. During these workshops Cedric studied colour theory, life drawing and did a lot of research into Ngarrindjeri history and culture at the South Australian Museum. In 2016 Cedric received another grant from Arts SA to continue his research and this time delve into his Narangga ancestry and stories. This painting is a combination of a variety of Narangga stories Cedric explored at this time.
The Granites by Cedric Varcoe Ngurunderi came down the river with his two sons, who he lost in the scrub after hunting emus with them. He walked around looking for them. When near Kingston S.E. he met an old magic man who had captured his sons. They had a war fight with magic and weapons. Ngurunderi won the fight and burnt the magic man’s body the old way, the flames turned his body into 3 rocks. The rocks are called ‘The Granites’ in English, and can be seen on the Coorong today.
