Wintjiya Napaltjarri of Papunya Tula Artists

Born near Kintore in the Northern Territory sometime between 1923 and 1934, Wintiya and her family walked to the Haasts Bluff settlement in the early 1950s. In 1992 she participated in the women’s painting camp there organized by Marina Strocci, and became associated with the Papunya Tula artists collaborative. Her subtly colored works depict objects associated with dreamings and rituals: the eggs of a flying ant dreaming and traditional nomadic women’s hairstring skirts.
