Description

Pintupi artists have had a profound influence on the development of the Western Desert art movement since it emerged at Papunya in 1971. Contributing artists for this exhibition include George Hairbrush Tjungurrayi, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Warlimpirnnga Tjapaltjarri and his brothers Walala and Thomas Tjapaltjarri, George Ward Tjungurrayi and Jake Tjapaltjarri.

The combination of Tingari or Dreaming motifs used to describe the culture and Country of these senior men, formed the basis of the abstracted dot designs that both described and disguised some of the great creation narratives from their heritage. With changes to the style and colours used by the desert artists over the past 45 years, the Pintupi artists have essentially stayed with the geometric structures and Tingari references that formed in the early years of the art movement.
