The story of Wintjiri:

"Wiltjiri is the Pitjantjatjara word for expanse of Country - and this work is about the Country that stretches for as far as the eye can see, and Country that stretches as far as the spirit can feel. Country can heal us as much as we can heal it. This work speaks to our ability to look after country through cultural means, such as traditional fire management and other means of caring for Country.

It also speaks to Country and its ability to heal us. This relationship is reciprocal. We are as much a part of Country as it is a part of us. Healing Country is healing ourselves, and healing ourselves, is healing Country."
