This exhibition showcases the works of Alice Nampitjiinpa and Eunice Napanangka Jack. For the first time these two old ladies are represented side-by-side each other. Their paintings tell the stories of their country along the WA/NT border, at Talaalpi and Lake Mackay, Tjukurrla.
In conjunction with Ikuntji Artists we are delighted to exhibit, for the first time, work by Alice Nampitjinpa and Eunice Napanangka. Both women are senior artists and law women at Haasts Bluff in the West MacDonnell Ranges and are the daughters of founding member of the acrylic art movement in Papunya, Uta Uta Tjangala and Tutuma Jack.
These paintings feature the topography and Tjukurrpa (dreaming) of their country of origin in the Tanami Desert.
Both artists are represented in public and private collection in Australia and overseas. Eunice is a finalist in the 2016 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Aboriginal Art Awards (The Telstra Awards).
They are on show in our Subiaco gallery until the 18th June and can also be viewed online.
