Judy Martin: Kurunpa Tjunanyi – Putting The Spirit Back In Place

December 1, 2021 - December 17, 2021

Courtesy: the artist, Mimili Maku Arts and Alcaston Gallery, Melbourne.

Alcaston Gallery is excited to present new paintings by Pitjantjatjara artist and ngangkari (traditional healer) Judy Martin in her long-awaited first solo exhibition, Kurunpa Tjunanyi – Putting The Spirit Back In Place.

Known for her bold visual language, Martin’s artistic practise draws inspiration from her wealth of cultural knowledge and intimate understanding of Country on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in north-west South Australia. In Kurunpa Tjunanyi – Putting The Spirit Back In Place, Martin paints her father’s Country, Wakura. Martin is a custodian of the land around Wakura and her practise draws attention to the importance of the water sources in the area, which have been guarded and cared for by her ancestors since the beginning of time. Her paintings can be interpreted as unique ‘bird’s eye’ views of Country mapping the distinctive geographical features of the desert landscape including kapi tjukula (the rockholes) amongst the puli (mountain ranges) and tali (sand hills) of Wakura.
