Sharelle mixes the traditional designs with bright and feminine colours such as orange, purple and pink and as you view the artworks you get a sense of the important stories which are shared through the artwork on multiple levels – through the land and the emotional connection between women as they share stories and participate in ceremonies. Sharelle’s works have not yet begun to be exhibited, however her works are sure to be recognised and admired by local Alice Springs galleries and around Australia. She is an emerging artist and the stories that are shared through her artwork are important and sacred for Pintupi people and as such should be included in any collection.
The brightly coloured circular shapes represent the Yala (bush food), such as Yipala (Bush Banana), Yumpultjati (Bush Orange) and Wirrinywirrinpa (Bush Berries) among many others. The larger concentric circles represent the rockhole sites around this area, which is where the women perform their sacred ceremonies. The large U shapes in the artwork depict the female elders (Grandmothers) as they teach the children where they need to go in search of different bush foods, medicines and water.
