Mother’s Country – Lupul by Jacqueline Reid Nakamarra
Our small gallery space is currently home to an exhibition of spectacular work by Jacqueline Reid Nakamarra.
Jacqueline Reid Nakamarra is one of the daughters to the very well-known and respected artist, Makinti Napanangka (dec.) and sister of Winnie Reid Nakamarra. Both of Makinti’s daughters have been painting the stories as passed down by their famous mother.
Jacqueline’s paintings depict designs associated with the sites of Lupulnga, a rockhole situated south of the Kintore Community. The Peewee (small bird) Dreaming is associated with the site, as well as the Kungka Kutjarra, or Two Travelling Women Dreaming. During mythological times a group of ancestral women visited this site holding ceremonies associated with the area, before continuing their travels north to Kaakuratintja (Lake MacDonald) and later the Kintore area.
Spend some time and enjoy this stunning selection of traditional stories, told with a contemporary feel.
