What people do on Granite Island – in Ngarrindjerri and English. These ancient rocks, under an old tree, provide a moment’s refuge to contemplate ‘then’ and ‘now’. Painting on rocks is an ancient practice. This is 21st century rock painting. It is one of several impermanent installations of ‘Sculpture Encounters’ on the island. The paint will fade and disappear in time, making space for something new, just as with all living things.
