Artwork Description

Nginku is an animated and lively artist, whose work explores important women’s Tjukurpa stories of the Western Desert. Her work draws on her extensive cultural knowledge to map the ancestral and geographical topographies of the desert landscapes that make up her home.

Here, Nginku depicts the Kungka Kutjara (Two Women) story, emphasising its immense cultural significance for Pitantjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra women. The creation story follows two sisters who are journeying through the desert during ancestral times. Like many Tjukurpa stories, Kungka Kutjara conveys important cultural and spiritual knowledge, and describes how the land came to be the way it is. In this work, Nginku draws attention to the Purnu (trees), beneath which the two sisters stopped to rest just outside Kaltukatjara.

Nginku is distinguished by her subtle style, stripped back palates and patchwork dotting.
