Luga, 2012

Artist: Kittey Malarvie

Medium: Natural Ochre on canvas

H 90cm x W 120cm
H 35½" x W 47¼"

Senior Waringarri artist, Kittey Malarvie's traditional country is the remarkable desert landscape around Sturt Creek. Layers of circles, motifs, dotting and intersecting lines map the country along the river banks and interpret the transition of the seasons across a land that is flooded and dry by turns, leaving behind the patterned ground of 'luga' cracked mud.

Kittey reveals layers of meaning and memories of a childhood playing with her sisters in these rich ochre paintings that connect to her traditional desert country south west of Kununurra and north of the Great Sandy Desert.
