About the artwork:
This is Bugai Whyoulter’s ngurra (home Country), the Country she walked with her family during pujiman (traditional desert dwelling) times. Whyoulter’s works are mediators between past and present, ruminating on the practice of living symbiotically with Country and culture. Defying common perceptions of Western Desert art, Whyoulter’s work is bold and gestural. Her signature style is characterised by original mark-making and riotous colour use in compositions at once fervid and tender.
In Ngurra, Whyoulter guides us through the undulating tali (sandhills), warta (trees, vegetation) and waterholes she has traversed over the course of her life.
About the artist:
Bugai Whyoulter, a Martu woman, was born at Pukayiyirna, north-west of Parnpajinya (Newman, WA). Whyoulter began painting professionally in her late sixties in 2007. Today, she is considered one of Martumili’s most established artists.
