Eubena Nampitjin developed her aesthetic alongside her second husband, Wimmitji Tjapangarti. They began collaborating in 1988, and though they initially worked in earthy brown and red toning with areas of white dotting and lines, by 1989 they began experimenting with soft floral patterns transforming the complex dotting and compositions into delicately beautiful and opulent paintings. Their early works portrayed Dreaming sites, country, and ancestral travels in the most intimate cartographic detail and are, to this day, are amongst the very finest paintings that have ever emanated from the community.

 

In this work, created after Wimmitji ended his painting career, Eubena has painted some of her country south west of Balgo, along the middle stretches of the Canning Stock Route, near her birthplace. This is the place where Eubena would often hunt and gather food. The strong lines in the painting depict the tali (sandhills) that dominate this country.
