Charlotte Phillipus Napurrula was born in Haasts Bluff/Ikuntji to Suzette Napaltjarri, the daughter of important Pintupi elder Kamutu and Long Jack Phillipus Tjakamarra, a founding member of Papunya Tula Artists. Her work is a version of Kalipinypa Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming), that pays careful attention to the sand aspects of her country. Meticulous and striking, her images are often large and two-tone, made up of patiently transcribed dots and lines.
‘Untitled’ is a fine example of Charlotte’s practice. In a palette of just four colours, she weaves an intricate pattern of markings, captivating the eye. The effect is both delicate and grounded, laden with Charlotte’s unique talent and rich culture.
In 2018, Charlotte was a finalist in the Telstra NATSIAA and Hadley’s Art Prize. Her work is held at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and the University of Western Sydney. She currently resides in Papunya, Northern Territory, creating work about Kapi Tjkurrpa and children’s stories, many of which are in the archive of Papunya School where she once taught.
For collectors of Aboriginal art and prints, ‘Untitled’ is a superb and enriching find.
