Yilpinji - Love Magic & ceremony
September 6th - November 31 2021
These beautiful prints are a selection made from the renowned and globally exhibited 'Yilpinji Collection' (2003-2007) and explore the visual traditions relating to Yilpinji, the love arts, and ceremonies practiced by the Walpiri and Kukatja people of the Central and Western Deserts of Australia. The original paintings were a response to a commission for works by senior artists on the theme of Love Art and accompanied by an interpretive descriptive. The unique stories of the love arts and the legends and landscapes pertaining to them are beautifully recounted by Dr Christine Nicholls, covering areas of kinship, courtship, unlawful relationships, decoration, song art, poetry, song, and narrative.

Warlukurlangu Artists is a prolific and successful Aboriginal-owned art centre in Central Australia and has work in collections across Australia and internationally. The principle aim of the art centre is to share Warlpiri culture and to increase awareness about Aboriginal culture in general. Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Association is the guardian of the Jukurrpa, the law and culture of the Warlpiri and Anmatyerre people living at Yuendumu. These acrylic paintings, as a collection, are a powerful tool of contemporary artistic expression, demonstrating diverse and collaborative methodology, and the artist’s ability to capture the vitality of Jukurrpa and its essential, vital integration with country. The artists’ Jukurrpa stories are vast in time and space, yet simultaneously acute, personal and immediate.
