Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Painted at Kintore in 2000
    Papunya Tula Artists, Alice Springs
    Alison Kelly Gallery, Melbourne
    Private collection

    Prior to 2000 the artist painted his country in the traditional Pintupi motifs of concentric circles and connecting lines. This example was executed in the first year that Tjungurrayi began to investigate painting with striated lines which led to his first solo show with William Mora Galleries in Melbourne.

    This painting is sold with an accompanying Papunya Tula Artists certificate.
