Artist Profile

Artwork is accompanied by Warlukurlangu Artists (Yuendumu) Art Centre Certificate of Authenticity/Provenance

Geraldine Napangardi Granites was born in 1978 at the remote Australian Aboriginal community of Yuendumu, in the Northern Territory, 290km northwest of the town of Alice Springs. She has lived there all her life. Geraldine has two sisters and one brother who also paint.

Geraldine’s mother is Alma Nungarrayi Granites, a strong participant in the arts centre in Yuendumu. Her grandparents – Paddy Japaljarri Sims and Bessie Nakamarra Sims (both have now passed away) – were two of the art centre’s founding painters.

Geraldine has four children: two sons and two daughters. She is a shy person who is very involved with her large extended family and enjoys being around children and helping the family’s grandchildren.

Geraldine learnt by observing her grandfather’s art as well as the late Judy Napangardi Watson’s work. When Judy visited Yuendumu, Geraldine loved to listen to Judy’s stories about a special country, Mina Mina. Mina Mina is a Warlpiri place to the west of Yuendumu. At Mina Mina, a group of ancestral women gathered a vine called Ngalyipi which grows on the Kurrkara (desert oak). Ngalyipi is a sacred vine to the Napangardi and Napanyangka women and is used as a ceremonial wrap or as a strap to carry Parrajas (wooden food bowls). Ngalyipi also has medicinal uses.

Geraldine also paints alongside her mother Alma and sister Sabrina and observes them while they paint. She is working hard to develop a modern interpretation of the traditional culture.

Artwork Description

Mina Mina is the area or country this painting is depicting. It is far west of Yuendumu and is very important to the Napangardi/Napanangka women. These women and their Japangardi/Japanangka brothers, are the custodians of the Jukurrpa that created the area. This story (Dreaming) tells of the journey of a group of women who travelled east gathering food, ngalyipi‟ (snake vine) and performing ceremonies as they journeyed. The ‘ngalyipi’ vine grows up the trunks and branches of the ‘kurrkara’ (desert oak trees. ‘Ngalyipi’ is a sacred vine to Napangardi and Napanangka women that has many uses. It can be used as a ceremonial wrap, as a strap to carry ‘parrajas’ (wooden bowls) that are laden with bush tucker and as a bandage for headaches.

The women began their travels at Mina Mina where karlangu‟ (digging sticks) emerged from the ground. Taking these tools the women travelled east creating Janyinki and other sites. Their travels took them eventually further than Warlpiri country. The women used the karlangu‟ to gather bush tucker on their travels. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, connected sites and other elements. The main theme used in paintings of these Dreaming are the karlangu”
