A busy area of a tidal flat along the Wildman River as cattle and feral animals travel from higher ground into the wetter areas of the floodplain. It’s interesting to check out the tracks and the actual depth because often single tracks are deeper than the pathways that have been more frequently traveled. The tide lines are natures pathways.
This artwork is very literal in many ways. The East Alligator River is a tidal river that relies heavily on the surrounding floodplains, to feed back in to the main river system. As the floodplains drain, they create little creeks leading into the river, which moves baitfish off the floodplains and into the East Alligator, which then Barramundi and other marine life feed off. Without the floodplains and seasonal rains, these creeks wouldn't be formed and would not allow for the cycle of life to continue. It would simply become lifeless.
