91 x 91cm: acrylic on canvas
This painting represents an area of the Artist’s country east of the Community of Jigalong. While growing up at Jigalong mission, the artist returned to her home every weekend to hunt and camp.
Dada is recognised as a great authority in Jigalong and is particularly knowledgeable about Country in that area. Many of her paintings have a hovering, vibrating quality that is thoroughly grounded in Country, jukurrpa (dreaming) and history, even while it challenges stereotypes of ‘traditional’ desert paintings.
Martumili Artists works across an extremely large geographical area. As such there is limited capacity to reach each community on a regular basis. While Martumili Artists supports Karntimarta Artists in Warralong, the artists paint largely independently.
By purchasing these works you are supporting Warralong artists in building a positive and sustainable arts practice. This purchase will help Martumili Artists support Kartinmarta Artists and other community outreach programs.
All works are affordably priced and have been painted on unstretched, pre-primed canvas.
