Untitled- Mukula, 2023

116 x 43 cmAcrylic on LinenSoldYinarupa describes her painting that made her a finalist in the annual Wynne prize in 2014 in the following quote;
“This painting depicts designs associated with the rock hole site of Mukula, east of Jupiter Well in Western
Australia. During ancestral times, a large group of women from the west stopped at this site to perform ceremonies associated with the area. The women, represented in the painting by the ‘U’ shapes then continued east. As
they travelled they gathered a variety of bush foods including kampurarrpa berries (desert raisin) from the small
shrub Solanu centrale and pura (bush tomato) from the Solanum chipppendalci plant.
The shapes in the painting represent the features of the country through which they travelled as well as the
bush foods they gathered.
