The Spirit of the Bush - Yamma-Coona

My name is Brooke Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from the Mount Isa area in Queensland.

This painting is called “Yamma-Coona” which means “The spirit of the Bush” in the Kalkadoon language.

In Kalkadoon country the song of Yamma-Coona can be heard, it is the thread that binds all things together. It can be heard as a whisper sung across the landscape, it can be heard blowing through the tree’s and it can be seen skipping invisibly across the billabongs and rivers forming little ripples.

Yamma-Coona is the spirit of the bush who alluringly sings a nameless tune.
