Hell Fire Corner, Ypres was considered 'the most dangerous corner on earth' during WWI. Intersecting with the Menin Road it was an important route junction under constant observation + fire by Germans on the high ground. Anything that moved across it was fired upon. Consequently canvas screens were erected beside the road in an attempt to conceal movement, much of which took place under cover of darkness, when the junction thronged with activity.

Dickie Minyintiri, began to paint on canvas when he was 91. Five years later, in 2011, he won Australia’s most prestigious prize for Indigenous art, the Telstra award. His painting, Kanyalaukutjina (Euro tracks), is the story of more than 90 years walking his “country.” It shows the tracks of kangaroos, dogs and emu coming to a water hole to drink … each layer and line is a memory of a journey he has undertaken. Dickie is also a senior Law Man and traditional healer.
