Artwork Description

Acrylic on canvas

Signed certificate of authenticity.

The painting depicts a site at the West of Tennant Creek Station, Kunjarra*. Ruth used a bright orange to evoke the evening light. This place is a ceremonial area where women and men go for practicing traditional dance. This place is culturally related to Karlu Karlu (Devil Marbles).
Landscape paintings have been a favourite subject for Aboriginal artists to discuss about their relationship with the land to a non-Aboriginal audience since Albert Namatjira has produced its world-wide famous watercolours of the Arrernte country.
