Born west of Mt. Allan near the present site of Yuendumu, Dinny Nolan Tjampitjinpa worked as a stockman on many cattle stations in the Northern Territory. In the 1970s he settled in Papunya. He is a senior Lawman and a recognised leader for Rainmaking and Water Dreaming ceremonies. Dinny Nolan’s art is characterised by his predominant use of natural ochre colours, and the designs he utilises are the same he paints on the bodies of men taking part in ceremonies. One of Dinny Nolan’s designs was used for a stained glass window in the National Gallery of Victoria.
The screenprint pictures water dreaming with sacred walking routes and waterways in the North Coast region of New South Wales. It is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia and Art Gallery of Western Australia.
