Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas

Signed on the back.

Janganpa Jukurrpa (common brush tail possum [Trichosurus vulpecula] Dreaming) travels all over Warlpiri country. 'Janpanpa' are nocturnal animals that often nest in the hollows of white gum trees ('wapunungka'). This story comes from a big hill called Mawurrji, west of Yuendumu and north of Pikilyi (Vaughan Springs). A group of 'Janganpa' ancestors resided there.

Steven Nelson has developed his own characteristic style in the depiction of the Jukurrpa, he is not using traditional iconography, his abstract representation of his dreaming is an exploration of the relationship of colour and form to depict the landscape and the story associated to his Jukurrpa.
