Krocette has recently presented his artworks at the Kildogo Arthouse Gallery in Fremantle, Western Australia, an independent art center that gave this artist the chance of his first solo exhibition. Is Krocette you art name? yes. And whats your full name? David Prior. Krocette, how long have you been painting? All my life, mainly watercolor paintings and drawings. What media are the painting youre showing now? Acrylic on canvas and acrylic on Belgian linen. I can do all different type of medium. How do you define your art? Its stories from upbringing of my childhood life and I tell my stories in my indigenous abstract. Are you an Aboriginal? Yes, and I come from the mid north east of Western Australia. What tribe are you? Yamarrji and my dialect is wagarri. Do you feel more Aboriginal or European descendent? More aboriginal; aboriginal come first then European. What are your stories normally about? Normally about family life, the land, the country and animals that live in those areas and places; about a rock over there, a stream or a water hole in the middle of nowhere and the changing of the colors in the four seasons. Usually as you get further north, the indigenous people have six seasons, not four like the Europeans. Also all that to do with the survival. Its like the education when youre young, you have to know where to find water and what plants to eat. What are the six seasons of the indigenous people of that area? When it comes to autumn the gum trees dont loose their leaves, they drop them all year round; then the yellow to gray comes in over the red to yellow country. Then when it comes to winter, you get the winds and the dust and thats cooling the atmosphere for the rain. The fifth its the spring, after the rain, its a time called call "time of plenty”, ‘cause there is plenty of food around: "bush tucker” (tucker = food, in Australian country talk). Coming to the summer, the hot dry winds come again and all the green changes to dry desert colors and all the water resources areas start drying out. Only certain water holes would have water from the underground water system: you have to observe animals and birds to lead you to that water in dry time. For example the little finch (a little bird), need water every day. Can you tell something about the artworks you are showing now? My current exhibition is about my grandmothers country and the ones with animals are the food sources on which the indigenous people live on in those areas. Have you shown your artworks elsewhere? Yes, in a few group exhibitions in Canberra, New South Wales, South Africa and most in Western Australia. What is art in your opinion? How to express yourself, imagination, inspiration, creative. Is art making the world better? It all depends on what youre painting.
