Linda Napurulla Ngitjanka Ngamanpurru (Bush Raisins) & Grevillea 2008
Acrylic on linen
1820 x 800mm

A colourful desert scene this painting depicts the sweet tasting grevillea, a hardy desert plant, growing in the shadows of the rocky hills that make up a large part of Linda’s home country of Alkipi, just outside of Haasts Bluff (Ikuntji) Community.

It is also a portrayal of the grevillea following rains which flower during this time, bringing life and colour to the desert.
