Price: Enquire

Cindy Nakamarra Gibson has inherited her mother Mitjili Napanangka Gibson’s love of strong colour and texture in her paintings. They sing with energy and vibrancy.

In this painting, Kunamanarra and Wirnparrku, she is depicting the country after rain with wildflowers in abundance. The sites represented are two table top mountains in the western desert. Kunamunarra, a low ridge rock face which contains a native well and Winparku, a round table top hill. This is her mothers’ country and an area that is deeply significant for both Mitjili and Cindy. 

Cindy has begun to paint this region as she deals with her mothers passing and inherits the stories and dreamings associated with this area. She has painted the country covered in wildflowers. Traditionally, people believed that big rain would come after a death and the desert landscape would respond by producing flowers.
