Audrey Brumby: Ngura Tjuta Munu Tjukula Tjuta
Ngura Tjuta Munu Tjukula Tjuta (151-23) by Audrey Brumby of South Australian Iwiri Aboriginal Corporation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Audrey was born in Ernabella, South Australia in 1967. She was a school teacher there for many years, and now resides in Adelaide. The Brumby family are from the Pitjantjatjara people and lands and speak the Anangu language. Audrey has been part of the Ernabella art collective for many years and can remember when they were taught batik techniques in the 1980’s as part of a cultural exchange. Some of her work reflects this early experience.
She has been a productive and passionate painter and has displayed work at Tandanya and has had major works installed at the AEU building (SA), Australian Taxation Office (SA), the Adelaide Hilton and in the historic Brookman Hall, UNISA, Adelaide.
Audrey actively works as a Pitjantjatjara translator and has also illustrated a series of children’s books written in both English and Pitjantjatjara language. Her work reflects dreaming, country-flora, travel through Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands and bush tucker.
