Artwork Description

My name is Glenda Hansen I am Oak Valley artist I'm from Tjuntjuntjara in WA which is just over the SA / WA boarder from Oak Valley Community, but my husband is from Oak Valley Community, my paintings represent my country were I grew up and were a now live Tjuntjuntjara and Oak Valley on the Maralinga Tjarutja Lands.
This art work tells the story of the the Spinifex People this work is spread across 3 canvas boards in a stair case formation very stunning.
If there was no burning of spinifex the nicest bush food wouldn’t grow.
When our people do back burning on Country, the Tjanpi regrows with flowers for the next springtime season,
In the old days our Tjamu (grandfathers) and Kaparli (grandmothers) generation would make a shade shelter in the Kuli Waru (Summer hot weather) from Tjanpi. In the spring time many flowers grow around Tjanpi such as Cassia, paper daisies, Parakeelya, poached egg daisies, native hops and Kuru Dyarn (Sturt Desert Pea), when the evening sunsets on the Tali Tjuta (Sandhill’s) the colours shine thru bright Orange & Yellow.
When our people burn the spinifex grass before the rain comes the Tjanpi regrows fast
