"In this painting I have painted the rocks around Haasts Bluff. They are in piles, and look like someone has put them there like that, but no, time has made them this way."
Keturah Nangala Zimran lives and paints in and near Haasts Bluff, 250 kilometres west of Alice Springs. The community live between two mountain ranges, and artists use large plains of colour. Keturah paints the landscape full of large rock formations and like other painters her uses strong, bold colours.
Born 1978 Keturah is the youngest daughter of Molly Napaltjarri Jugadai and the wife of emerging Ikuntji male artist Billy Pareroultja. She has been painting for 8 years, however with a family of 7 young children Keturah is only able to work when she gets a spare moment.
