Acrylic on canvas
Winsome is a Ngaanyatjarra artist who paints Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) sites, primarily her grandfather’s Country of Lake Christopher. Winsome favours pale colour applied in a thick impasto which are evocative of the organic, salt-crusted surfaces of the desert lake. These pale areas are punctuated by irregular shapes denoting the rockholes of the lake area. Winsome first lays out the composition of her works by tracing the amoeba-like rockholes, then adds darker colours to the centre and outlines of these holes before filling the remainder of the canvas with paint using punu (wood).
