Rain on Water - Ruby Davies

Rain on Water - Ruby Davies


Ruby Davies, Rain on Water

Oil on board, 32.2x43cm

When I started this series in 2017 my focus was the muted beauty of the Darling Barka.  The sombre colours, the slope of banks and the light at different times of day. Since September 2018 when ABC’s Four Corners ‘Pumped’ exposed political scandals, government corruption, water theft - and an avalanche of media attention - these escalating tensions have seeped into my images. A shift to inverted views; the mirror reflection of the river above, as seen on the water’s surface. And in response to the latest scandals; viewed through dark branches, the expanse of the river reduced to stagnant green pools with increasing stretches of dry river bed.


Artworks can be collected from the gallery free of charge after the closing date of the exhibition.

We charge a flat rate of $35 for all artworks within Australia, with an additional $5 added for each extra artwork purchased through our online store.
