The painting is titled Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming) by Zenaida Nampijinpa Gallagher at Warlukurlangu Artists.
Zenaida was born in 1993, in Alice Springs Hospital, the closest hospital to Nyirripi, a remote aboriginal community located approximately 430 km from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. She is the grand-daughter of Gayle Napangardi and Teddy Jakamarra Gibson and grand-daughter of Pauline Napangardi Gallagher, major Warlpiri artists. She began painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation in 2007 and paints her father’s and grandfather’s Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming – Ngarlikurlangu), stories which relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it.
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.
