About the artwork:

The rhythmic linear dotting in this work represents the tali (sandhills) of the area surrounding Waran. This significant site sits within Minyawe Miller’s ngurra (home or Country).

In this work, Miller’s use of negative space evokes the long, sharp shadows that announce the days end in the desert. Miller’s restricted colour palette and sparing dot work conjures what could as easily be a starry night sky as a series of shifting sandhills, glinting in the dying light.

About the artist: 

Born in the pujiman (traditional desert dwelling) days, Martu man Minyawe Miller grew up travelling across the country around Punmu (WA) with his family. As a young man, Miller walked across great stretches of this country carrying only his tajitaji (smouldering stick) and jurna (hunting stick). Travelling between water sources, Miller and his family hunted and collected bush foods such as warmula (bush tomatoes), emu and marlu (kangaroo) as they went.
