Artist : TOSSIE BAADJO
Title : When I was young
Size/Medium : 1000 x 500mm: acrylic on linen Painting
This painting tells the story of when Tossie was a young girl walking in the bush. The circles show the places she travelled (from bottom to top) Nynmi, Nyila, Ngatawali (Well 37 on Canning Stock Route), Tjalyirr and finally arriving in Balgo. The green represents the grasses she hid in with Imelda and her family from the kartiya (white fellas), and the radiating lines show the tali (sandhills) she walked through on her journey.
