My Great Grandmothers Country – Bonita Kemarre Woodman

The community of Ampilatwatja made a conscious decision not to paint ‘altyerr’ dreaming stories. The artists paint their country where those stories belong.

Bonita paints ‘Tijamburra’, her Great Grandmothers country. Bonita is the daughter of Denise Ngwarraye Bonney.

“This is my Great Grandmothers country, out near Canteen Creek, we go hunting  for wild onions, goannas, echidnas and sugar bag honey in the trees.’

She often paints the country after rain.
