NEW November 2019


Provenance is set in and around a fictional Warlpiri community at the Western edge of the Tanami desert in central Australia. It is the story of an English doctor, whose love of the red desert country brings him to work in the remote community. When a patient asks him to sell some of her paintings for her, he finds himself engaging with the wheelers and dealers who make their living out of Aboriginal art, and the moral issues which surround the practice. And later, when he finally gets the trip out on country that he has been looking for, he comes up against the true meaning of 'the middle of nowhere'.
