Lives and works

Pipalyatjara, SA

In the early 2000s, the first Aboriginal art studios were set up in the western region of the APY Lands. It was during this time that Angela started her art practice. Her artworks draw influence from Tjukurpa (traditional stories), particularly those of Minyma Kutjara (Two Women Dreaming), an important story from her father’s country, Irrunytju. The Minyma Kutjara story tells of two women travelling alone who are looking for fresh kapi (water). Angela’s paintings frequently show the path and camps from their journey across the lands, as well as the nighttime constellations of the Milky Way that lays above. She works with bold, graphic colour palettes and is notable in her use of both contemporary techniques and composition to tell the traditional story.
