Confetti by the River (2022) by Debra Hood

A depiction of the Brown Snake meandering through confetti.

The Brisbane River has long been called the Brown Snake because of its murky discolouration. Due to urbanisation and dredging impacting its hydrology, it is unlikely to ever return to a blue colour. Despite this, the river is beloved by Brisbane residents and this painting celebrates its brown tones with a thin meandering line travelling from the river estuary at Moreton Bay to the suburb of Fig Tree Pocket.

Abstract in its arial presentation, thousands of small colourful dot-like brush strokes embrace the brown snake as it is embraced by all who treasure its significance to Brisbane life.
