‘Mitian’ is Wadi Wadi for moon. Doug’s print refers to 200 years of settlement. Doug researched the phases of the moon using the internet and this print shows the present day full moon in the centre, below it is the year of his birth,1958, and above is the year 2058. This work is about time and constant change – in lifetimes, phases of the moon, seasons and nature.
Doug has worked in many areas of cultural heritage. He is rich in knowledge of the river and the connections and storylines of its people. This knowledge is reflected in his artwork and he continues to both protect and teach his cultural heritage.
