"On my first visit to the Pilbara in 2019 I saw those hills for the second time. Under a carpet pierced with light, we dreamt of another time. Here in this place by Dales gorge I saw what Fred (Williams) saw, these ancient rocks, the bones of our country, of an age we cannot fathom, here to see, here to rest by, here to wake to. Williams painted these hills, this landscape, and so to me it is familiar. It is in these rocks that I find a slow pace that I can depend on, that is unmoving in our eyes. I can look there and it is the same. To this land I am nothing, to me it is everything."  - Michelle Teear
