Ninuku Arts: Walka Waru - Walka Wiru Ngura Wiru by Carol Young
"Walka Wiru Ngura Wiru" Blown glass vessel, with design painted by Carol Young of Ninuku Arts
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Walka Waru: Ninuku Kalawatjanga ungu painta
Warm Works: Ninuku painting inside glass
This collaborative project explores new materials and forms, with artists who normally paint on canvas transferring their skills to glass for the first time. The artists at Ninuku Arts, in Kalka in the far northwest of South Australia, have painted their characteristically bold and colourful designs onto glass ‘starter bubbles’, which have then been blown into larger forms by JamFactory glass artists. The resulting works present ancestral stories in a striking new medium.
Carol Young was born in Alice Springs in1972 and grew up in Amata and Pipalyatjara in the remote Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara Lands in North Western South Australia. Carol is the daughter of local cultural leader and camel herder Stanley Young and the granddaughter of the late Nyankula Watson, an important Western Desert painter whose stories about the country in the area Carol now tells.
