Situated in the south-eastern pocket towards the West and South Australian borders, the lands belonging to the Spinifex people are remote and isolated which has served their culture well.

Spinifex arts practice has been untainted by a history of ethnography or tourist market art. However painting “country” is not always so simple for a traditional artist; much of the Tjukurrpa must remain in the sacred realm and not be revealed even to an uninitiated eye. In this way Spinifex artists, like their counterparts in other communities, have created a system of story telling that identifies country within the confines of their Law. Their work has emerged from tradition but evolved in a contemporary context that results in a highly resolved and balanced composition.
