Kungkarrangkalpa (Seven Sisters)
Acrylic on cotton canvas
Marcia is the daughter of Anawari Inpiti Mitchell and Winston Mitchell, two senior Community members in Papulankutja. Marcia comes from a big family of artists and began painting when the new Art Centre was built in Blackstone. Marcia has been involved in Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council and has been active with NG Media, a Yarnangu Corporation supporting cultural performance and broadcast throughout Ngaanyatjara Lands. When Marcia paints, she is often influenced by the style of her uncle Tommy Mitchell’s (deceased) work; he painted the Walu Tjukurrpa, a story of two men and one boy camping at Walu Rockhole.
