Our latest First Nation artwork collaboration with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation. This beautiful purple inspired dreaming art is the work of Joy Nangala Brown .

The site for this Dreaming is Yumari, a collection of rocks west of Kintore in the Gibson Desert. Yumari is the site of a forbidden love union between a Japaljarri man and a Nangala woman. This dreaming story is like the ancient version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet

 

Artist Bio:

Joy Nangala Brown was born in Alice Springs 1966. She spent most of her childhood at Yuendumu, although did several years of schooling in Alice Springs at Yirara College. Joy moved to Nyirrpi in the early 1980’s, and has lived there ever since, although she travels back and forth to Yuendumu to visit family. Joy is the daughter of the successful Pintupi artist Pegleg Jampijinpa, and grew up with his art work around her. She is married to Jay Jay Spencer, the adopted son of another highly successful artist from Yuendumu, Paddy Japaljarri Stewart. They have two children, a daughter and son and grandchildren. Her daughter Debbie Napaljarri Brown also paints with Warlukurlangu Artists. Joy has been painting with Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Yuendumu, since 2006. Joy paints her Father’s and Grandfather’s Lappi Lappi Jukurrpa stories. They relate directly to the land and its features, and the plants and animals that live on it. Joy enjoys hunting for goannas and bush tucker, playing cards and singing in the church choir in her spare time.
