How Artworks Are Sent

Ochre / Kimberley artworks are shipped on canvas or linen, already stretched, ready to hang unless stated otherwise.

Acrylic artworks are shipped on canvas or linen un-stretched, rolled up in a cardboard tube unless stated otherwise.

These artworks will need to be stretched on a stretcher board before hanging.

This can be done by nearly any picture framer (highly recommended) or you can DIY if you’re confident in your handiwork.

There are numerous "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to achieve this.

Artist Profile

c.1930 – 2011

Makinti Napanangka was widely acclaimed as one of the most important of the Western Desert artists. Her language group was Pintupi and she was born in c. 1930 in the area of Lake MacDonald. Prior to the establishment of the Papunya Community, Makinti and her extended family walked to Haasts Bluff. Makinti passed away peacefully in Alice Springs in January 2011.

She began painting in the mid–1990’s and her distinctive style and composition, combined with delicate colouring, brought her immediate success. She never changed her basic content; that of the travels across country, women’s ceremonies and the dress associated with her culture.

Utopia Art’s Director, Chris Hodges, has been quoted as saying that Makinti Napanangka was the central desert’s “best painter since Emily Kngwarreye”. Hodges believes the artist had no living match in her painterly freedom, and her wonderful blend of naïve and sophisticated elements.

Makinti was selected for inclusion in the retrospective exhibition “Papunya Tula – Genesis and Genius”, at Sydney Art Gallery of New South Wales 2000 and was a finalist in the Clemenger Contemporary Art Award 2003 at the National Gallery of Victoria. In the March 2003 issue of the Australian Art Collector magazine she was named as one of the 50 most collectable artists in Australia.

In 2008 Makinti was named the winner of Australia’s richest Indigenous art prize, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award. Her work is represented in major collections world-wide.

Artwork Description

This work incorporates designs associated with the travels of the Kungka Kutjarra (two women), Ancestor figures whose travels cover great distances from Pitjantjajara country, then north east through to and beyond Haasts Bluff and Papunya. The wandering lines that feature in the painting depict the swirling hair string belts and skirts worn by the women during the ceremonies that were performed as they travelled over the vast land. Hair string belts are often used symbolically to represent the act of women dancing. The belts, worn above the hips have dangling strings often with feathers attached which swing about as the women dance, highlighting their attractiveness.
