Maps and marks
Indigenous paintings from the central regions of Australia are often remarked upon for their seemingly topographic marks and patterns. Located in the Honey Ant Hills, work from Papunya Tjupi Arts is a testament to this reflection of country that can only be shown by a deep understanding and knowledge of the land, and its creator law.
Maureen Poulson-Napangardi, Charlotte Phillipus Napurrula, Flora Brown, and Mary Roberts Nakamarra share a striking two colour palette of fine pulsating patterns to create topographic-like depth and movement.
The work of Beyula Puntungka Napanangka, Emily Andy Napaltjarri, Isobel Gorey Nambajimba and Martha McDonald use more lyrical and curvilinear features to describe places and events, while the rich under-painting by Tilau Nangala and Candy Nelson Nakamarra, glow beneath like the fiery sediment of the earth’s core.
A desert landscape would not be complete without the sublime Tali tali (sand hills) from Mona Nangala.
