  • Please enjoy these beautiful colour fields by Margaret which share the site of Ngarlikurlangu🙂 #aboriginalart 107x91cm | $1369 or $136.90 per month with Art Money | Free post | Available on our homepage (bio link) Margaret Nangala Gallagher was born in 1967 in Alice Springs Hospital, the closest hospital to Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290 km from Alice Springs in the NT of Australia. She is the daughter of Pauline Napangardi Gallagher, an artist who has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists since 2005. Margaret attended the local Yuendumu School but shortly after moved to Nyirripi with her family. Margaret still lives in Nyirripi, an Aboriginal community 160 kms west of Yuendumu. She is single and has one sister and three brothers. Margaret has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, since 2007. Warlukurlangu Artists is an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Yuendumu, and has been providing the residents of Nyirripi with materials to paint since 2005. She paints with her mother and learnt to paint watching her mother and other people in the community painting. She particularly enjoys painting with her mother as it is an opportunity for her and her mother to share their Jukurrpa stories, Dreamings passed down to her by her father and mother and their parents before them for millennia. Margaret paints her Yankirri Jakurrpa (Emu Dreaming) from her father’s side and this Jukurrpa story belongs to Jangala/Jampijinpa men and Nangala/Nampijinpa women. When Margaret is not painting she is studying at Batchelor College in Alice Springs as well as working at the Women's Centre in Nyirripi.

  • Please enjoy the warmth of this beautiful new painting by Murdie🙂💜 Here she shares her Malikijarra Jukurrpa or two dogs Dreaming. 182x122cm | $5379 or $537.90 per month with Art Money | Free express post | Available on our homepage (bio link) In this Dreaming story, two dog ancestors, a Jampijinpa and a Napangardi, travelled from the west to the east. They began at Yarrajalpa (a waterhole) and travelled through Wirninginpa, Jinarli, Karljawarnu (a rockhole), Jilwirrpa, and Waanjurna (a rockhole). They dug holes in the ground and created ‘warnirri’ (rockholes) and ‘ngapa’ (waterholes) as they went. At Tapu (a rockhole), the two dogs separated. The female dog, Napangardi, went to the south towards Ngamarnawarnu. The male dog, Jampijinpa, went to the north through Mukirri and Paruwu. Eventually he became lonely and howled for Napangardi in the south. She came running to him, and they married each other at Ngarnka. They wore men’s and women’s marriage headdresses, and Jampijinpa painted himself with white clay for the ceremony. After the wedding, they continued on slowly to the east through Kurduwijawija, Warlarla (Rabbit Flat), and Yurlpuwarnu (rockholes). At Yurlpuwarnu they started a fire using a ‘jimanypa’ (stick), a spear-thrower, and ‘yinirnti’ (bat-wing coral tree) wood for firewood. The dogs then continued east through Kulpurlunu (a waterhole) and Ngumurlungu, where they encountered some other dogs. However, these dogs sent them away while they performed a sacred ceremony. The two dogs continued running east, past Jarramarda and Yankirrikirlangu, before arriving in Warlaku (Ali Curung). Many other dogs were living in Warlaku when they arrived. There were many families of dogs, mothers and fathers and children and uncles all living together. Jampijinpa and Napangardi made a burrow to rest in and started a big family of dogs there. They chose to stay in Warlaku and live with all the other dogs. In this way, the ‘malikijarra Jukurrpa’ (two dogs Dreaming) tells the story of proper conduct in families and marriages.

  • These new didgeridoos are seriously mind blowing (excuse the pun!). The piece on the right has already sold, leaving us to start an exciting new life in Nashville (aka Music City!). Hand carved and painted by local artist Brad Go-Sam, these works feature an amazing three-dimensional effect. He creates this by carving out the lizard shape so it appears to wrap itself around the didgeridoo, then layers intricate, colourful dots in a mosaic effect to depict legendary characters from Jittabul culture 🎨🌴

  • PAINTING OF THE WEEK!! This fabulous colourful painting by Margaret Nangala Gallagher represents the Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming). The image depicts an aerial view of the site of Ngarlikurlangu, north of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory, where the 'yankirri' travelled to a rock hole to find water. Here their tracks would be present in the land as arrow-like shapes, as they walked around the site eating 'yakajirri' (bush raisin). There is a dance for this Jukurrpa that is performed during initiation ceremonies. We love the way a traditional story can appear so modern, with the expressive use of bold colour Margaret uses to paint her land 🎨🌴

  • PAINTING OF THE DAY 🖌 - Felicity Napangardi Gill, "Lappi Lappi Dreaming" 30x30cm. Lappi Lappi is a rock hole in Western Australia, that is a permanent source of water surrounded by country rich in bush tucker. In the time of Jukurrpa (Dreamtime) mothers with young children would gather there as it was a safe place to stay. The rock hole was also home to a "warnayarra" a rainbow serpent 🐍 which travelled underground between holes. One day the women & children were singing & dancing, the warnayarra heard them & swam silently to them, rose out of the water & ate them all 🎨🌴

  • Please enjoy this beautiful new work by Megan Nampijinpa Kantamarra🙂 #dotpainting 91x76cm | $969 | Free post | Available on our homepage (bio link) Marapinti is a rock hole west of Kiwirrkurra. Where the country is flat, the Marapinti Jukurrpa tell the story of young women of all skin groups travelling between rockholes and the easternmost point on the Seven Sisters’ journey across Martu Country. The women travelled whitout men and they went to Milmilpa and Yaka Yaka east of Malpurri. As they journey through the landscape, singing and dancing towards Pintupi Country, the Minyipuru created waters and landforms. On reaching Marapinti, they pierced their noses, a practice known as marapinti. Today the Minyipuru can be seen there as a group of rocks, sitting up like women.

  • ARTIST OF THE WEEK 👩‍🎨 Katharine Marshall Nakamarra - "Tjintjintjin - My Mother's Country". Born in 1968 at the desert settlement of Papunya, Katharine paints the stories passed down to her by her parents Walangkura & Johnny Yungut. Her paintings are typical of Western Desert works using lovely thick dotting in earthy colours to show aerial perspectives of the ceremonial land of her ancestors. 🎨🌴

  • Please enjoy this beautiful new work by Gloria Napangardi Gill😊 Here she shares her Lukarra Jukurrpa or desert fringe-rush Dreaming⚡ 107x91cm | $1369 | Free post | Available one our homepage bio link) This Jukurrpa belongs to women of the Nakamarra/Napurrurla subsections and to Jakamarra/Jupurrurla men. This Dreaming is associated with a place called Jaralypari, north of Yuendumu. Lukarrara (desert fringe-rush) is a grass with an edible seed. The seeds are traditionally ground on a large stone (‘ngatinyanu’) with a smaller stone (‘ngalikirri’) to make flour. This flour is mixed with water (‘ngapa’) to make damper cakes which are cooked and eaten. In Warlpiri traditional paintings iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, particular sites and other elements. Large concentric circles often represent the site of Jaralypari and also the seed bearing grass Lukurrara. ‘U’ shapes can depict the Karnta (women) collecting ‘lukarrara’ and straight lines are frequently used to portray seeds that fall down to the ground and are also collected by women using their ‘parrajas’ (wooden food carriers) and ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks).

  • Please enjoy this striking Emu Dreaming by Margaret Nangala Gallagher🙂 #aboriginalpainting 76x61cm | $659 | Free post | Available on our homepage (bio link) This particular site of the Yankirri Jukurrpa, (emu Dreaming) is at Ngarlikurlangu, north of Yuendumu. The ‘yankirri’ travelled to the rockhole at Ngarlikurlangu to find water. This Jukurrpa story belongs to Jangala/Jampijinpa men and Nangala/Nampijinpa women. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements. Emus are usually represented by their ‘wirliya’ (footprints), arrow-like shapes that show them walking around Ngarlikurlangu eating ‘yakajirri’ (bush raisin). In the time of the Jukurrpa there was a fight at Ngarlikiurlangu between a ‘yankirri’ ancestor and Wardilyka (Australian bustard) ancestors over sharing the ‘yakajirri’. There is also a dance for this Jukurrpa that is performed during initiation ceremonies.

  • Please enjoy this beautiful new work by Polly-Anne Napangardi Dixon🙂 Here she shares the important Women's Dreaming site of Mina Mina🙏 76x61cm | $659 | Free post | Available on our homepage (bio link) In the Dreamtime, ancestral women danced at Mina Mina and ‘karlangu’ (digging sticks) rose up out of the ground. The women collected the digging sticks and then travelled on to the east, dancing, digging for bush tucker, collecting ‘ngalyipi’ (snake vine), and creating many places as they went. ‘Ngalyipi’ is a rope-like creeper that grows up the trunks and limbs of trees, including ‘kurrkara’ (desert oak). It is used as a ceremonial wrap and as a strap to carry ‘parraja’ (coolamons) and ‘ngami’ (water carriers). ‘Ngalyipi’ is also used to tie around the forehead to cure headaches, and to bind cuts. The women stopped at Karntakurlangu, Janyinki, Parapurnta, Kimayi, and Munyuparntiparnti, sites spanning from the west to the east of Yuendumu. When they stopped, the women dug for bush foods like ‘jintiparnta’ (desert truffle). The Dreaming track eventually took them far beyond Warlpiri country. The track passed through Coniston in Anmatyerre country to the east, and then went on to Alcoota and Aileron far to the northeast of Yuendumu and eventually

  • Echidnas did not have spikes, they were created without - and they used to eat birds eggs, until one greedy echidna ate all of the birds eggs around and attempted to eat eggs from the nest in the highest tree. Lightning hit the tree, causing the echidna and the birds nest to crash to the ground, trapped under a tree branch the nest on top of the echidna. The echidna could not open its beak all the way whilst he was under the tree. The echidna was trapped under the tree and forced to eat termites as the birds nest grew into the echidna skin and created echidna spikes. The moral of the story is to not be greedy, as greed turns us into something we don’t want to be. #dreamtime #mural #echidna #beauty #learn #culture #northernterritory #lucky #blessedtobeapartof #storytelling #mural #art #indigenouspainting #indigenousart #aboriginal #lovemyjob

  • PAINTING OF THE WEEK 🖌 - Jorna Newberry, "Walpa Jukurrpa". Jorna is a Pitjantjatjara artist, from Angus Downs in the NT. She lives between the communities of Warakurna & Irrunytju & Alice Springs and lives both the traditional Aboriginal culture of her indigenous background & the contemporary culture of modern Australia. She regularly goes bush with the women of her community to participate in traditional ceremonies. She began painting in mid 1990s at Warakurna. Over recent years Jorna has worked closely alongside her legendary uncle, Tommy Watson and follows his abstract style, ensuring secrecy of important indigenous cultural matters, rather than taking a more figurative approach. 🎨🌴

  • Meet Warraburnburn.  In many ways, the Warraburnburn ghost spirits are like people. They emerge from the patches of jungle on Warrawarra & Balkarranga country in the late afternoon to go hunting in family groups. They stay in contact with each other by calling out as the men hunt for fish & the women walk with their dilly bags looking for food. Different types of ghost spirit wear different patterns, Warraburnburn is decorated in white dots while others are painted white all over. Some ghost spirits are shown with a design painted on their chest infilled with rarrk 'cross-hatching', the same designs that are painted onto japi an-guyinda 'male initiates'. 🎨🌴

  • 👩🏼‍🎨ARTIST OF THE WEEK - BETTY MBITJANA Betty is the daughter of renowned artist Minnie Pwerle and sister of Barbara Weir. Betty paints the Awelye, Bush Berry and Bush Plum Dreaming. Her mother and other women used to collect these fruits, cut them up into pieces, skewer them on a piece of wood and dry them to be eaten in the off season times. She paints ceremonial art that the women would paint on their bodies during these Alweye women's ceremonies. They would paint their chests, breasts, and upper arms in ochre, white and red. These ceremonies paid homage to their ancestors and show respect for their country and maternal roles in their community. 🎨🌴
