Lakes-river-ocean. Bradley Kickett’s abstract paintings depict topographical aerial views, illustrated in a fluid style that he has developed over the last three years. Kickett’s art pieces are influenced by experiencing Noongar country, from the oceans to the rivers and seeing the wildflowers and the land from the air and showing the flow and the shapes of the earth. These images are all interwoven with the history and the stories that are shared and passed down to him from his family and elders.
In Binjar-Bilya-Warden, Kickett focuses on the Western Australian salt water system. By tracing the movement of bodies of water, the works explore the transition between fresh water lakes and salt lakes; how these bodies run into rivers and then out to the ocean.
