'The Poinciana is in season during Christmas time


The Poinciana trees blooms with bright red-orange flowers from November until February in Queensland. These trees climb up to ten meters and their leaves have a feathery quality. Under the Poinciana trees you can escape the heat and take in the beauty that stretches across Coen, my community in Cape York. This is the Country of the Kaantju peoples, my mother’s family line and just south of the saltwater Country of the Umpila peoples, my father’s family line. This is a deeply felt history. This painting is inspired by feelings towards my natural world. Mountains, plants, animals and people. We are all one.'

Naomi Hobson's new exhibtion 'Language of the Land' opens at Arthouse Gallery on 25 May - 10 June 2023.
13 – 28 May 23
