Beatrice W is an emerging Indigenous artist who began working with Durrmu Arts in August of 2017. Her three sisters Margaret, Susan and Diana also paint for the art centre located in Peppimenarti approximately 300km south west of Darwin.
Peppimenarti was founded in the mid 70s as a permanent settlement for the Ngan’gikurrunggurr people. ‘Peppi’ translates as rock and ‘menarti’ as large, referring to the rock formation that overlooks the community. At its base is a wide stream and a series of pools which is a significant, sacred site. Today, the community has a population of approximately 200 people.
This artwork depicts a variety of tracks and marks across the land in Peppimenarti.
