In her recent works now showing at Japingka Gallery, Fabrianne Peterson Nampitjinpa has utilised a new sense of colour that is applied in free flowing forms, and is then interspersed with her signature style of graduated dotting. The artworks depict stories from her father’s country at Karrinyarra, to the north of Papunya.

In one story the artist the artist shows the rain, having fallen overnight, leaving water lying over the ground. There are lots of different types of Yala, or Bushtucker, found in these areas of abundant surface water. Wild flowers grow and that indicates that different Yala can be found there.

Various types of Bushtucker found around the rockholes after rain include Wanganu (Damper Seed,) Yala (Bush Potato), Ipalu (Bush Banana), Yalka (Bush Onion), Pura (Bush Tomato), Pakunu (Bush Beans), Malu (Goanna), Pilkati (Snake), Kanpi (Emu), and Kanyala (Wallaby). Also many different species of birds can be found around these waterholes.

Fabrianne Peterson Nampitjinpa was born at Papunya community in the Northern Territory in 1965, and attended school in Papunya and Alice Springs. For part of her life Fabrianne lived at Walungurru (Kintore) community, where she painted alongside her mother-in-law, Nabulla Scobie Napurrula.

Fabrianne’s particular attention to detail sets her apart from many other younger generation Aboriginal artists of the Central Desert region.  Fabrianne depicts in her paintings the Willy Wagtail Dreaming stories from the area of Mt Liebig, and also Bush Potato and Honey Ant, and stories connected with Kunatjarrayi (Mt Nicker).

The Aboriginal art works in this current exhibition come from Fabrianne’s father’s country. They were passed down to the artist by her father and represent the shared cultural experiences of her family on their traditional Aboriginal homelands at Karrinyarra. Karrinyarra, also known as New Haven, is located north of Papunya and west of the Tanami Track, in the Central Desert.
