Irlupa 24-092 by Rita Watson

Rich tones juxtaposed with earthy hues, each piece speaks its own story of Irlupa; a site near Papulankatja in Western Australia, a place where Western Ngaayatjara and Eastern Pitjantjatjara dialects diverge.

This is the story of Rita's father's ngurra (camp and country) where she spent time as a young person, home to many tjukurpa (dreaming) sites, stories and inma (songs) for Anangu in this area. Her Uncle travelled from Irlupa to Pita Pita and witnessed his brother (Rita's father) being born in a rockhole there.

This artwork is an original acrylic on canvas, framed in Tasmanian Oak and includes a certificate of authenticity.

___

Rita Watson is a Pitjantjatjara Minyma (women) hailing from a remote community in Western Australia. Daughter of renowned artist, Tjuruparu Watson, Rita developed a strong passion and dedication to art making, heavily influenced by her father's country, 'Irlupa.' Rita's work tells the story of the land, filled with Tjukula (rockholes), Kalyan Kalyan (Honey grevilla plant), Kampurarpa (Bush Tomatoes), Anangu (people) and Punu (trees).

Using Milpajunanyi (traditional sand drawing) style, Rita creates textured works that translate into visual form the many important tjukurpa (dreaming) sites, stories and inma (songs) for the Anangu from Irlupa.
