Kubbitji has painted his ‘My Country’ piece. His works describe the seasons across his land. This beautiful piece shows the changing of the seasons — yellow for spring, and the new growth, red for summer with its blistering heat, green for the autumn warm, but wet weather, and blue for the cold winter mornings and nights. He was born around 1928 and is the younger brother of Emily Kame Kngwarreye (dec). He had a traditional upbringing in the Utopia area before he began his career as a stockman and mine worker.
