Rainbow Desert

Ellie Hannon

Rainbow Desert is about finding rest and calm in the harshest of landscapes. The subject of this painting is a waterhole I came across on Arrernte country when hiking in the burning heat along the Larapinta trail. This painting presents a still from my memory, captured when moving though landscape that considers the sanctity of pockets of shade and water in these isolated locations. In this work, I aim to draw in the viewer to sit beside me and rest, with the water and shade, an embrace from the bendy gums, soft pink grasses and sandy soil.
