About the artwork:
Papa Tjukurpa represents a pivotal work for Donegan. In this work, the artist boldly deviates from his signature style of fastidiously detailed dot-work, in a breakthrough piece that is startlingly contemporary.
Donegan paints the Papa Tjukurpa (Dog Dreaming) entrusted to him by his father. The artist’s loosely unfurling circles and spare infilling reveal the inky black depths of the canvas, speaking of a complex ontological system that marries physical and metaphysical worlds. The artist’s compelling use of vibrant, rhythmic line work strikes a harmonious balance with the negative space, chronicling the papa’s journey across Donegan’s homelands.
About the artist:
Born and raised in remote Western Australia, Donegan laboured as a stockman, craftsman, and senior lawman, and in the 1970s helped organise the outstations movement. Since beginning to paint in 2000, the artist become renowned nationally and abroad for his rich and vivid compositions of his cultural inheritance. He painted for Ninuku Arts in the APY Lands of South Australia until his recent death.
