Dadda Samson

65 x 50 cm acrylic on arches paper
Year: 2019


This Painting depicts Mungulu an important kupi (water) place kakarra (east) of Puntawarri a now abandoned community in-between Jigalong and well 17 on the Canning Stock Route. This area is her brother’s country. 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.
