This work is from the 2009 series, Naked Landscapes of Victoria, an impressive body of work in which TextaQueen positioned her female subjects as figures which played a key role in historical events. In this work, Carla plays a witch who came to the Wimmera town of Wycheproof in search of kin. As witches often do, she fled to the local mountain to take cover in its rocky slopes, only to discover that it stands only 43 metres above the surrounding plains.
