About the artwork:
Yuyuya Nampitjinpa’s untitled painting depicts designs associated with the site Umari, a rockhole situated in the sandhill country near Mt Webb (WA). A large group of ancestral women travelled east from Umari to the rockhole Pinari, north-west of Kintore (NT). Along their travels, the women collected the edible berries known as kampurarrpa or desert raisins (Solanum centrale). Kampurarrpa can be eaten straight from the bush or ground into a paste and cooked over coals to make damper. From Pinari, the women continued their journey east to the site of Kalipinpa, a major Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming) site north of Sandy Blight Junction (NT).
Yuyuya Nampitjinpa’s work is characterised by her use of a complex symbolic language rooted in ancient cultural tradition. The artist’s skilful use of colour, movement and negative space makes her interpretations of these symbols strikingly contemporary. In this work, the artist’s bold use of warm colours and repetition of form transports the viewer to the undulating sandhills of her homelands.
About the artist:
