Patterns of the Lanscape around Nyirrripi

Kathleen has represented the patterns of the landscape associated to her country and to her Jukurrpa. Nyirrripi is located 160 km west of Yuendumu, the country is covered with sand dunes and low vegetation’s, sand storm and whirly-whirly (mini tornados) are frequent occurrence in the country. The designs that Kathleen paint are closely associated to the fixtures of the country, several whirl-whirly lifting simultaneously out of the ground carrying with them dust and seeds to be deposited somewhere else in the landscape.
