Ngurra Tie by Bugai Whyoulter | One of Twelve

One of Twelve

$70.00

A beautiful silk tie featuring the artwork of Martumilli artist Bugai Whyoulter. The tie is 100% silk satin with cotton padding and silk lining.  All of the ties come in a beautiful gift box and include an artist's card, detailing the artist's work and practice. This is Bugai Whyoulter’s ngurra (home Country), the Country she walked with her family during pujiman (traditional, desert dwelling) times. Whyoulter’s works are mediators between past and present; ruminating on the practice of living symbiotically with Country and culture. Defying common perceptions of Western Desert art, Whyoulter’s work is bold and gestural. Her signature style is characterised by original mark making and riotous colour use in compositions at once fervid and tender. Described as an irrepressible painter and brilliant colourist, Whyoulter’s work speaks of her intimate and profound connection to her Country. Whyoulter’s practice has been described as almost trance-like; the act of painting transporting her to important sites within her Country such as Wantili, near the place of her birth. In Ngurra, Whyoulter guides us through the undulating tali (sandhills), warta (trees; vegetation) and waterholes she has traversed over the course of her life.
