Renita Stanley: Minyma Kutjara Wingellina
Minyma Kutjara Wingellina (187-23) by Renita Stanley of South Australian Iwiri Aboriginal Corporation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Renita was born in Ernabella and has lived there all her life. She attended the mission school and on leaving she followed her mother, Tjariya, into the craft room.
The oldest of five children, Renita and her siblings spent much of their time growing up out at their parents’ homeland, Tjalyritja, in times when the homeland (outstation) movement was still strong. Renita has one son, Ngunytjima, who worked in the ceramics studio.
Renita’s distinctive artwork draws from traditional mark making while being her own visual interpretation of her stories. Renita is a distinguished artist whose work has been acquired by galleries across Australia and overseas.
Renita has been the Chairperson of Ernabella Arts and also the Anangu Mayatja. As well as her full-time arts career, Renita is strongly involved with the church and Ernabella Choir, in particular the singing of hymns in Pitjantjatjara at regular gatherings at Ernabella.
