In this painting Lindy Brodie revisits the place where she grew up after an absence of many years. Alroy Downs station homestead is north of the Barkly Homestead on the Barkly Highway and about 270km NE of Tennant Creek NT where Lindy now lives and where she works from the Barkly Regional Arts studios. Lindy is an accomplished colourist and this painting is evidence of her most recent explorations where she emerges from her normal style with the use of bold and vibrant colours to compose this memory.
As a chronicler of her childhood, family history and station life in the Barkly, Alroy Downs has been a frequent subject of painting for Lindy. Her visit was recorded as part of a documentary on Lindy that is being produced by Barkly Regional Arts to celebrate her artistic contribution to the Barkly.
