"The 'My Country' series is inspired by my recent trip to Central Australia. Having not visited the country of my ancestors since I was a child, I was struck by the intense shapes, colours and landscapes. When I look at these prints I see rocks or mountains, night skies or rivers, desert flowers or stars of my country. They represent my connection to both the Luritja deserts of my Nanna and the Kuku Yalanji beaches and rainforests of my Nanny." - Kayannie Denigan.

About the artist: Kayannie Denigan is an emerging Australian Aboriginal artist. She works predominantly in acrylic on canvas and is inspired by a painting style that was passed down from her grandmothers – the iconic dots and symbols of Central Desert art. She combines this ancient form of storytelling with the colours and stories from the lands and culture of her childhood home in Cape York.
