Going from Alroy Downs to Boroloola (Anzac Day)
Acrylic on canvas
61 x 61cm
This painting has been executed by Lindy Brodie in February 2018. She evokes her memories as a child, observing the army crossing her country for training. This painting has been an opportunity to have a better appreciation of World War I, the involvement of the indigenous people in the army, and the costumes, vehicles.
Altogether, it is mostly an homage to the Australian army that has always played an important part to the remote areas of the country by helping to build new buildings, sharing their knowledge and promoting their values.
