This colourful acrylic painting is titled Pikilyi Jukurrpa (Vaughan Springs Dreaming) by Sarah Napaljarri Simms at Warlukurlangu artists.
Sarah was born in 1988 in Balgo, a remote Aboriginal community in Western Australia. After her mother passed away, Sarah moved to Nyirripi where her father was originally from. This is where she creates her paintings of Dreaming stories taught to her by her grandmother, particularly about women's ceremonies which took place in Pikilyi. She says that she used to watch her grandmother paint and listen to her stories, which is what inspired her to create her own artwork. She finds it relaxing and enjoys using a colourful palette to create a modern interpretation of her Jukurrpa.
Established in 1985 Warlukurlangu is a not-for-profit organisation that is 100% Aboriginal-owned by its artists from the remote desert communities of Yuendumu and Nyirripi in Central Australia. Warlukurlangu Artists is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings and limited edition prints. The art centre has a national and international profile and its art has been featured in hundreds of exhibitions and publications in Australia and around the world.
