Ronnie Tjampitjinpa was born around 1943 at Tjiturrunya, about 100km west of the Kintore ranges in Western Australia. Following an extended drought in the 1950s, Ronnie’s family moved to Haasts Bluff and then on to Papunya where he grew up.
This piece was painted in 2007 and is 129cm x 180cm in size.
Ronnie’s style tends towards simple, geometric shapes and bold lines. He explores the themes of water dreaming, bushfire dreaming and the Tingari cycle.
