Explications sur cette œuvre :

Sonia Kurrara (1951) grew up in the river country at Noonkanbah (Yungngnora), south-west of Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. She has worked through Mangkaja Arts since its establishment in the early 1990s and in recent years has become known for her vibrant, energetic paintings that celebrate her riverland home.
"Martuwarra is my river country; this painting is all about the Fitzroy River which flows down through Nookanbah where I live. All kinds of fish live in the water, we catch big mob of fish here. I like Parlka (barrumundi). We catch catfish and brim here too. Nganku(shark), wirritunany (sawfish) and stingray also live here. These fish live in these waters long after the flood has gone."
