Woolloomooloo (2015)

This triptych also depicts the outdoor, heated, saltwater Boy Charlton pool located in Woolloomooloo. The name of this inner Sydney suburb comes from the first homestead in the area, Wolloomooloo House, built by the first landowner John Palmer, but its original derivation is a matter for debate; suggestions include Aboriginal words meaning (variously) place of plenty, black kangaroo, burial ground, and field of blood.
