Tingari - Men's Creation Dreaming | 30h x 29w | RK220
Stretched - no frame | Acrylic on canvas
Like his brother, Thomas Tjapaltjarri, Walala paints Tingari - Men's Creation Dreaming which represents many sacred sites of his Country – such as Wilkinkarra, Maruwa, Tarrku, Njami and Yarrawangu, to name a few. These are locations of significant rockholes, sandhills, sacred mountains and water soakage’s in the Gibson Desert.
Walala has a strong structural element to his painting style. His Tingari are always detailed and quite symmetric. This is the element that defines his artwork from his brothers. Walala always uses strong, earthy colours which are reflective of the traditional ochres used by Men during ceremony.
