"This is a story about Alroy Downs station. Alroy has bores, there are tanks, windmill, people visit the bore to make sure the water is on. This is what I see."
Tartukula Artist, Heather Anderson has painted a landscape of Alroy Downs at night, a cattle station in the Barkly Tablelands located 200km from Tennant Creek. Heather grew up on Alroy Downs station and fond memories of the station inform her visual language. The landscape includes the recurring motifs of a windmill, bore, bullockies and eucalypts.
