Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed certificate of authenticity.

Joy paints the Tali (sand hills) around her mother's home of Warakurna. When she paints, she is walking through the sand hills with her mother, finding food and learning. Her bold choice of colours is based on what she finds in the sand hills - browns and yellows for liru (snakes), pink and white for the bush flowers. She particularly loves talking about the sweet nectar from the purple gum nut trees found around Warakuna. Joy paints in a unique way; creating a bold, contemporary interpretation of her tjukurpa. The forms she uses cause the eye to see movement and motion - the rise and fall of the sandhills, the patterns the wind creates in the sand, the feeling of running her fingers though the sand and leaving behind her tracks
