Artist's Description

When I was a kid, the first one to see a VW Beetle belted the other – usually an unsuspecting sibling in the back seat of the car – and yelled “punch buggy” and then whatever colour that Beetle was. Depending on how much pain you wanted to inflict, this sometimes applied to Kombi sightings too.

This VW was found lying derelict in a place called Kookynie, an old gold-mining ghost town in the Northern Goldfields of Western Australia. I love how nature is taking it back, with the Cotton Bush growing out from, and around it. “Punch Buggy Busted” just seemed to fit……..
