Papunya Tula Artists in conjunction with Scott Livesey Galleries presents the works of Wintjiya Napaltjarri in her first solo exhibition.
Wintjiya Napaltjarri’s assertive personality and sense of place assures her a respected position amongst the women painters of Kintore. As one of her communities esteemed elders she remains a proud cultural authority, renowned hunter and generous provider for her family, including her much admired, inseparable sister Tjunkiya Naplatjarri.
Her early pastel coloured works have gradually been refined to bold, iconic marks that provide a vivid narrative of the ceremonies of ancestral women at her beloved Watanuma. These gathered works are a celebration of Wintjiya, her culture, knowledge and self.
The exhibition will open on Wednesday July the 5th at 6pm and conclude on the 26th of July 2006.
