A Dust Storm at Mparntwe

This artwork is a memory of my time in Alice Springs. The weather was hotter than we were used to in April, and we had spent a good part of the previous two weeks in the car’s air conditioning, which seemed to make things worse.

After spending the best part of the day lazing around, I worked up enough energy to head out on my own to go and stock up on supplies. The others stayed back at camp which gave me some much-needed time on my own.

I took the time to do some people watching, one of my favourite things to do, while I explored the local art galleries and shops. I strolled the main street and talked to the aunties who had set themselves up on the lawns, painting away in the shade of the mammoth trees.

As I headed back towards the car, I was met in the distance with a giant dust storm which created a huge whirly wind. It would have stretched one hundred metres or more into the sky. I was captivated, rooted to the spot in which I stood. A group of teenagers nearby were shouting with excitement as they stood staring also. As quickly as it appeared, it was gone, swirling into nothingness.
