This inspiring exhibition celebrates colour, creativity and the telling of stories. The vibrant pallette and the love of colour – from bold brush strokes to delicate dotting – each painting is a contemporary interpretation of tradition, ceremony and ancestoral stories.

Liddy Walker was born at Mt Doreen in 1925 and spent her younger years living with her family in bush camps. She regularly visits her country around Mt Theo and Tanami desert. Liddy has lived in Yuendumu, a Warlpiri community in the Tanami 300km northwest of Alice Springs, since it was first established and has worked in the community in various pastoral care roles including as a cook. She stated painting on canvas not long after Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Association was established in the mid 1980’s and is now one of its most senior and successful members.
