The large organic forms in "Yellow Water Cruising I" and "Yellow Water Cruising II" symbolize the giant lily pads that float on the surface of the Yellow Water Billabong in Kakadu. This Billabong is the main waterway in the area and serves as a natural supermarket of food and a life source for the surrounding ecosystem.
The delicate lines running through each lily pad show the interconnectedness of the leaves, which act as a natural filtration system for the Billabong and are dependent on each other.
The hints of warm yellow and orange hues between the dense layers of green and blue paint represent the routine of the lily pad as it stretches out to the sun during the day and folds in on itself at night.
