This body of work was created by the leading Luritja women artists from Papunya Tjupi at a recent art camp that took place at Karrinyarra, north of Papunya (NT).
The focus of this exhibition is on the pantu muluwurru (salt lake) from this special site and the Yalka Tjukurrpa (Bush onion Dreaming) relating to this site.
During this week long camp out the women shared and painted both their dreaming stories relating to this site and also responded to the overwhelming dry salt lake that sits within the landscape.
The women have titled this body of work pantu (salt) to frame the work in comparison to where it sits in this exhibition in Manly by the salt water.
