Rod Moss continues his story as a whitefella living in a remote Aboriginal town camp on the edge of Alice Springs. His distinctive subjects, both white and Aboriginal, interact with each other and the landscape to create striking incidental scenes. These include real life scenarios, such as elders playing traditional music or a child watching a group of dogs, and imagined, such as a surreal scene of girl handing a ball to a giant colourful bird. Moss’ new series utilizes his highly developed palette of oranges and dark blues to depict the harsh landscape of outback Central Australia and its inhabitants.
