Sometimes, it is hard to see the rainbow for the clouds. In her piece from Griffith Review 47: Looking West, ‘Might be rainbows’, Holly Ringland tells the story of her life-changing trip through remote and desolate communities in WA, procuring Aboriginal artwork to sell in Uluru and destroying preconceptions along the way.
In her twenties, Holly worked for four years in a remote Indigenous community in the central Australian desert. Moving to England in 2009, she obtained her MA in creative writing from the University of Manchester in 2011. She now divides her time between the UK and Australia. Her debut novel The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart is due to be published by 4th Estate in April 2018.
