Lives and works

Tjuntjuntjara

Living and working in Tjuntjuntjara, 650 km northeast of Kalgoorlie, Dora is known for her paintings of the traditional Spinifex Lands – a spiritual landscape steeped in tjukurpa (dreamtime stories) that define and permeate her work. Working with a newfound freedom and expression she once thought unattainable, due to an accident that left her with a disability, Dora depicts such stories as Wati Kutjara Tjukurpa (Two Men Creation Line). This epic narrative, which unfolds in the significant site of Pukura, follows father and son wanampi (water serpent) as they move across the continent, leaving indelible reminders of their power and presence.
