Papa Pirni! (Many Dogs!)
Tjanpi (grass) acrylic wool, raffia
Winifred is an artist belonging to the Ngaanyatjarra cultural group and lives in the remote community of Warakurna. Primarily working with traditional Tjanpi materials, including wool, raﬃa and Minarri grass, Winifred’s works focus on depicting local desert animals and traditional artefact shapes. Winifred has developed a distinctive aesthetic with her sculptural works – grassy and strong with ﬂuid shapes. One of her favourite things about making Tjanpi is being able to go out onto Country for grass collecting, hunting and other bush trips. Winifred is also an accomplished painter represented by Warakurna Artists and punu artist (wood carver) represented by Maruku Arts.
