Ned Grant follows the wata (tree roots) underground as they search for life affirming water sources. He sees them intertwined in the fabric of the significant sites he paints, depicting them as metamorphic beings from creation or as life saving water catchments in times of drought. This linking with this flora permeates all of Ned’s work as he identifies with the spiritual connection the trees have always possessed across the lands and through eons. Here he depicts the significant site of Puutunya situated in the east of traditional Spinifex Lands and which holds the Kungarangkalpa Tjukurpa (Seven Sisters Creation Line). It is here at Puutunya that the women engage with the famed Wati Kutjara (Two Men Creation Line). These are creation beings and as such created the landscape that we see today. They brought into existence, the religion that connects a moral compass to the environment and celebrates an oral tradition of song, dance and storytelling of their exploits. The fact that these beings could transform through the realms is what aligns with Neds depictions, as he uses trees to manifest into fauna or flora. It is this spatial awareness between the dimensions that give the composition its profound resonance.
