Artist Profile

Provenance: Tjala Arts (APY Lands)

Yaritji Young is a Pitjantjatjara woman born c. 1954 in the bush near the creek at Ernabella in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands of far north South Australia. Young now resides at Rocket Bore, and is a senior law woman committed to fostering law and culture in the community. Her works are drawn from the Tjala (Honey Ant) Dreaming.

A talented artist, Yaritji Young has been painting at Tjala Arts since late 2000, and has also exhibited with the Tjanpi Desert Weavers across the years. In 2004, she was a finalist in the 29th Annual Shell Fremantle Print Award and the 21st Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award. Both paintings and weaved objects by the artist are held in public collections in Australia.
Young was a finalist in the 2013 30th Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award and the 2016 33rd Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award.

Alongside her sisters Tjungkara Ken, Sandra Ken, Maringka Tunkin and Freda Brady, Yaritji Young won the highly prestigious Wynne Prize for Landscape at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney in 2016.

In 2017, Yaritji Young had her first solo exhibition at Alcaston Gallery in Melbourne which was a sell out success.

Loving how Kirstie finds brilliant artists and shares not only the artwork, but the back story of both the piece AND the artist. You can tell she absolutely loves Aboriginal art, and she has such great rapport with the artists.
