Author/artist, Rod Moss has lived in Alice Springs since 1984 during which time his art has promoted conversation between First Australians and settler culture. His art has been exhibited and reviewed in Australia and the U.S.A, significantly represented in 2004 NGV Show, Australian Art Now, and published in Terry Smith’s Contemporary Art: World Currents. The Hard Light of Day and One Thousand Cuts won the NT Chief Ministers Book of the Year. Hard Light also won the Prime Minister’s Award for non-fiction. A third memoir, Crossing the Great Divide, recounts his life prior to relocating in Mparntwe. The comic graphic novel, Blue Moon Bay, followed. Two books of drawings, All My Fat Country and Dancing Under Heavy Manners, document places familiarised through enduring association with Eastern Arrernte neighbours.
