Curatorial insightThese works from Pickett’s unfinished Noongar 6 seasons series were created at a time when the artist was commencing his initial explorations into the depiction of this important Nyoongar subject matter onto canvas. These works provide early background and context to the print suite Six Seasons and Calling for rain: The Wanyarang suite, and they reflect the artist’s earliest move to a less figurative style.
