Presented by Salon Art Projects in association with Papunya Tjupi Arts
Carbiene McDonald resides in Papunya, a four hour drive to the North West of Alice Springs. In his paintings he depicts four dreaming stories (tjukurrpa) which he inherited from his father. These tjukurrpa are associated with a series of waterholes running between Docker River and Kata Tjuta. Specifically, it includes four important sites: Petermann Ranges, Docker River, Kalaya Murrpu (Blood’s Range) and Mulyayti near Kata Tjuta. As a young man, Carbiene returned to these places and retraced the footsteps of his father. These memories stay with him vividly today and inform his stunning work.
