PROVENANCE

The provenance of works of fine art is of great significance, especially to their owner. There are a number of reasons why painting provenance is important. A good provenance increases the value of a painting, and establishing provenance may help confirm the date, artist and the subject of a painting. It may confirm whether a painting is genuinely of the period it seems to date from. Documented evidence of provenance for an object can help to establish that it has not been altered and is not a forgery, a reproduction, stolen or looted art. Provenance helps assign the work to a known artist, and a documented history can be of use in helping to prove ownership.

All artworks of our Gallery come with a AAA Gallery Certificate of Authenticity and where possible, working photographs and/or a photo of the artist with the artwork and/or video of an artist in working process of creating an artwork.

ABOUT ARTIST

Yinarupa Nangala is a Pintupi woman who was born "bush" at Mukula, across the WA border in the region of today's settlement of Kiwirrkurra. She is variously reported to have been born around 1948 and 1961, birthing records not

being available. Yinarupa is more likely to have been born in the early 1960s and is the daughter of one of Papunya Tula Artists greats, Anatjari Tjampitjinpa.Yinarupa Nangala was a co-wife with, amongst others, Ningura Napurrula of another Papunya Tula great, Yala Yala Gibbs. Thus, she is also related by marriage into George Ward Tjungurrayi's and Willy Tjungurrayi's families.Yinarupa started to paint in 1996, her motherhood duties being substantially complete. For some time she gained only moderate recognition for her works. It has only been in recent times that she has leapt into the public eye. In particular, 2009 saw her austere style finally be recognized for what it is, classic Pintupi art at its best.Yinarupa Nangala, a mother of 5, spends her time between her community of Kiwirrkurra and in Alice Springs. 
DreamingsYinarupa paints her traditional land where the women gather to conduct ceremonial business. The sacred designs she paints have an intuitive sense of space and rhythm and are associated with the rockhole site of Mukula. These places are also sites with much food, and the women gather the seeds of the native Acacia. They collect the seeds and grind it into flour and eventually bake bread from this. Her paintings also commonly show rockholes which are important water sources in the desert. During ancestral times a large group of women came from the west and stopped at this site to perform the ceremonies associated with the area. Yinarupa received an honorable mention at the 2010, 36th Alice Art Prize - A National Contemporary Art Award. She exhibited this year in Idaho, USA as part of an exhibition by Papunya Tula Artists, 'Art of The Western Desert'. This collection of twenty one paintings by senior and emerging artists from the remote desert communities of Kintore and Kiwirrkura will be the first exhibit of its kind held in the famous resort town of the pacific northwest region of the USA.

This artwork by Yinarupa refers to the Dreaming path of a group of Tingari women who travelled through Mukula gathering bush foods. During ancestral times a large group of women came from the west and stopped at this site to perform the ceremonies associated with the area. The women, represented in the painting by the ‘U’ shapes, later continued their travels towards the east, passing through Ngaminya, Kiwirrkurra and Wirrulnga on their way to Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay). As the women travelled they gathered a variety of bush foods including kampurarrpa berries (desert raisin) from the small shrub Solanum centrale, and pura (bush tomato) from the plant Solanum chippendalei. The shapes in the painting represent the features of the country through which they travelled as well as the bush foods they gathered.
