Pirkijarra (My Mother) • Suzanne O’Connell Gallery • 9 October - 9 November 2013
This exhibition exclusively features the stunning works of artist Nora Wompi.
From the Suzanne O'Connell Gallery website:
"This body of work was created by Nora at Kunawarritji and Parnngurr, with many works painted on country special to the artist including Kun Kun, Kinyu and Kunawarritji soak.
Nora has been painting for a long time, she first started painting at Balgo with Warlayirti Artists then when Martumili was established Nora started painting at Kunawarritji where she lives along with other Martu artists Nora Nungabar and Bugai Whyoulter.
These paintings are of her home, her country, as she paints she talks about all the country she walked with her mother.
When we asked her what name she would like to give to her exhibition she said Pirkijaar, my mother, it’s my mother, for my mother.
The exhibition coincides with Nora Wompi’s inclusion in the WA Indigenous Art Award at the Art Gallery of WA August 23 2013 to January 2014."
