Literature & references: Michael Taylor held a solo show at the Joseph Brown Gallery, 10-24 November 1975, of related works, including 'Woman in the sea' and 'Frost grey' - both of this size.

Note: “The seasonal cycles described by different aboriginal groups are as varied as the land itself. The Northern Hemisphere pattern sits uncomfortably with the reality of Australia’s climate that covers tropical monsoon, desert, savannah, alpine and temperate zones. This sheer diversity seems to defy the concept of a rigid European seasonal calendar – spring, summer, autumn, winter – applied to the entire continent. In contrast, Aboriginal people can recognise up to six distinct seasons…Yarralin people are particularly interested in the behaviour of rain, or yipu, which takes many forms: the cold weather rain, the hot weather rain, the first rain after the really hot time of the year, and the smell of the first rain.”
Gergis, Sunburnt Country…, MUP, 2018, p. 118 - 119
