Tjimpuna Williams: Tjukula Tjuta
Tjukula Tjuta (274-23) by Tjimpuna Williams of South Australian Iwiri Aboriginal Corporation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Tjimpuna has worked across several mediums including painting, linocut prints and batik, but her chosen medium is ceramics.
In 2012 she was a finalist in the Indigenous Ceramic Art Awards at Shepparton Art Museum. Tjimpuna uses traditional patterns that relate to rockhole (tjukula) or sand dune (tali), and also paints the Tjukurpa of her mother's country - Piltati, near Kanpi in the APY Lands. Other pieces are her personal walka (design). These designs are drawn from batik patterns and from her own interpretation of images from country and ceremony.
Tjimpuna's work has been acquired for Museum and Art Gallery collections both nationally and internationally.
