Evelyn Nampijinpa Daniels was born in 1956 in Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290 km north-west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. She was raised in Yuendumu, and attended the local high school. Evelyn is the younger sister of Dolly Nampijinpa Daniels and they would often paint together before Dolly passed away.

Evelyn has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation since 2001. She paints her mother’s and her father’s Jukurrpa stories, Dreamings which relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. These stories were passed down to her by her big sister Dolly and her mother, and their parents before them for millennia. She uses an unrestricted palette to develop a modern interpretation of her traditional culture.

 

This painting tells the story of a Jangala ‘watiya-warnu’ ancestor who travelled south from a small hill called Ngurlupurranyangu to Yamunturrngu (Mount Liebig). As he travelled he picked the ‘watiya-warnu’ seeds and placed them in ‘parrajas’ (food carriers), one of which he carried on his head. Watiya-warnu is a seed bearing tree that grows in open spinifex or mulga country.

When people returned to their camp after collecting the seeds they would make large windbreaks for shelter and winnow the seed in the late afternoon. Immature ‘watiya-warnu’ seed is ground into a paste and can be used to treat upset stomachs. The associated ‘watiya-warnu’ ceremony involves the preparation of a large ground painting.
