It’s flamin hot darl
It’s flamin hot darl is a large-scale painting commission by Wiradjuri artist Beth Thornber. Thornber’s multi-disciplinary practice employs a visual alphabet of animal, plant, and human motifs to consider themes of historical and environmental impact on the post-colonial landscape. Her works examine existing structures cemented in everyday life, reimagining ideas of sacredness, boundaries, common ownership, and shared responsibility. It’s flamin hot darl continues Thornber’s practice of accessing of childhood memories and family stories of the Milawa (Murray River) through painting.
