HOLIDAY CAMP – LORRAINE DAYLIGHT
Lorraine Daylight has painted her father’s country. Daylight’s father is senior Warmun artist Gordon Barney. ‘Holiday camp,’ Gordon Barney says. ‘Walkabout every holiday catching kangaroo, porcupine, goanna – all sorts.’ Barney worked as a stockman on Alice Downs station as a young man. In the periods where they were given a break from station work, Barney and his family would camp at this place and live on bush food. This country was excellent hunting ground.
