Artist's Description

During the day, the mob spreads across the 3 paddocks available to them to feed where they can, picking at the meagre dry grass covering. Of an evening, just before sunset, they stream back into the timber paddock for shelter and water, pumped up from almost 100 feet below the ground. The well is running dry, and the feed has almost gone.

Those who stay on as farmers have nerves of steel, as far as i’m concerned, trusting their livelihood to something as relatively arbitrary and random as seasonal rain. I come from them, but I am no longer of them. I can’t gamble with stakes so high…
