About the Artwork – My Country

Tjawina paints ‘My Country’ which encompasses the traditional Dreaming sites of her birthplace. This piece represents ‘Yumara Dreaming’ which tells of a forbidden love story and ‘Punkilpirri Dreaming’ representing a large water site as well as ‘Tjalili’ representing the geographical area of her country.

About the Artist  

Tjawina Porter Nampitjinpa

Tjawina Nampitjinpa is a half-sister to the late Nyurapayia Nampitjinpa (also known as Mrs Bennett).

She grew up 'in the bush' at Yumara. Her family later moved to the established government settlement of Papunya.

Initially a basket weaver, Tjawina now paints her mother's and father's dreaming; the sites of Yumara, Punkilpirri and Tjalili.

Her paintings are modernist in frequency. The works are of great importance within her community.

Like other desert artists who moved from their homelands, Tjawina Porter Nampitjinpa maintained a strong connection to her ancestral country around Docker River. Now living back at Docker River with her sister Esther Giles Nampitjinpa, Tjawina paints some of those important Dreaming sites from birthplace.

Tjawina has become one of the most collectible emerging artists from the central desert. Her works are held in many private and international collections.
