Tatali Nangala was born west of Kintore and moved into Papunya during the 1960s where she later married Western Desert painting founder Charlie Tararu. She began painting during the women’s workshop at Haasts Bluff in 1994 and alongside Inyuwa Nampitjinpa developed the minimalist style that formed the basis of Pintupi women’s art.
This painting depicts designs associated with the travels of a group of women from Kaakuratintja (Lake MacDonald) area east to the rockhole site of Tika Tika. As the women travelled they gathered edible berries known as Kampurrarrpa or Bush Raisins (Solanum centale) and the fruit known as Pura or Bush Tomato (Solanum chippendalei). They also hunted Goanna.Share
