Artist Statement:

Kirritji, which is a long way east of Patjarr Community, amongst spinifex country, is a rockhole site consisting of five rockholes. This place belongs to the artist's grandfather (tjamu) who was called Pukulu, so it is family water for the artist.
Tingarri* people passed through this site and killed a man here before heading further east to Yalankarra on the way to Tjukurla. *Song cycle depicting the route of dreamtime people who travelled from the sea near Port Hedland to the northern part of the central desert. It also refers to the route and to the dreamtime people who followed that route. (source: Ngaanyatjarra to English Dictionary; IAD Press).

Warakurna is a community situated on the Great Central Road in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of Western Australia. Warakurna has a long history of artistic expression. In March 2005 the Art Centre studio was opened, and is fully owned and governed by Aboriginal people, providing services to artists living and visiting Warakurna and the nearby community of Warakurna.

The Art Centre plays an important role in the community, providing cultural an social benefits in addition to economic returns. Warakurna Artists facilitates the production, distribution and sale of the artist' artwork. The paintings are vibrant and diverse, reflecting each artist's unique style stories and connection to the country. All proceeds are returned to the artists and their organisation.
