Maisie Campbell Napaltjarri Paintings
Maisie Campbell Napaltjarri - Pintupi artist, paints Women’s ceremonial themes from Kintore region. Artworks available for sale.
Maisie Campbell Napaltjarri paints the Tjukurrpa, or Dreamings, that have been handed down in her family line for countless generations. The Tjukurrpa depict the sites associated with women’s ceremonies referred to as Minyma Inmaku. These sites are located in the area between Kintore and Kiwirrkurra in Western Australia, and Maisie paints them in aerial perspective, showing the elements of the country that are sacred for her people.
Many of the sacred rockholes in the Kintore region are maintained as important ceremonial sites by Pintupi people. Kapi is the Pintupi word used to refer to water, and the location of these sites is critical to both the physical and spiritual survival of the Western Desert people.
Aboriginal art status – Highly regarded artist.
