Exhibition Overview

FEATURING NEW WORKS by artists from Papunya Tjupi, these paintings reveal the individual stylistic elements used by each artist combined with a  refined and limited  tonal palette to create works of both bold contrast and subtle variation.

The  lyrical and painterly line work of senior law woman Tilau Nangala, snakes around areas of light and dark as she paints the story inherited from her father, the great Water Dreaming site of Mikantji.

Tilau says her auntie taught her culture and stories but she developed her own ideas on how to paint them. She paints "so the children can watch me paint and learn, so I can pass on my Dreaming and stories to my grandchildren”.

Also inheriting  the tjukurrpa from his father, Carbiene McDonald Tjangala paints four dreaming stories associated with a series of waterholes. Carbiene's marks reflect a mosaic -like patterning complete with tonal gradations to  create a shimmer in the work. Similarly,  Maureen Poulson Napangarti paints the Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming) with subtle and succeeding directional dots creating movement and light upon the canvas, evoking the important rain making ceremony to create new life and growth upon the land.

Other artists in the exhibition include Doris Bush Nugarrayi, Beyula Puntungka Napanangka, Martha McDonald Napaltjarri , Mona Nangala, Isobel Gorey Nampitjinpa, Candy Nelson Nakamarra, Watson Corby, Charlotte Phillipus Napurrula, Linda Anderson Jonggarda, Priscilla Phillipus Nakamarra and Isobel Major Nampitjinpa.
