72 x 122cm: acrylic on canvas
Parnngurr was a very important site for the artist’s family in the pujiman (bush) days as there is a permanent yinta (waterhole) there. The artist used to camp in this country with her family when she was young. They would meet up with a lot of their other family members here. They would all come together before travelling on to other places. This is where the artist and her family were picked up and a big mob taken to the mission in Jigalong. This area is now the site of the Parnngurr Aboriginal Community.
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.
