Connie has painted her Grandfather's Kapi Tjukurrpa, from Yala Yala outstation near Kinotre, NT. The work represents a waterhole from this area. Connie speaks of how when she was a child she would dance and watch her Grandfather paint. After her Grandfather passed away, she began to paint his story, influenced by his style of painting.
The lines represent the rain clouds, raining on the land, allowing for many Pituri to grow from the water (represented by the white dots). Pituri is a type of wild desert tobacco. The plant produces a white flower which Connie paints. In Central Australia the leaves from this plant are used for chewing.
