The Artwork Story
Yarla Jukurrpa (Bush Potato Dreaming) – Cockatoo Creek
Based on an original painting by emerging Warlpiri artist, Alicka Napanangka Brown, the Red Earth design depicts a place called Cockatoo Creek, that is located on the tribal homelands of the Warlpiri Aboriginal people in the remote Tanami Desert region of Central Australia. It is a place where the Warlpiri women dig for traditional foods, Yarla (bush potato) and Wapirti (bush carrot).
Alicka Napanangka Brown was born in the Alice Springs Hospital, the closest hospital to her home community of Yuendumu, a former Aboriginal mission in Central Australia. Alicka comes from a long line of artists and has developed her artistic skills by watching her family paint and listening to their stories. Alicka attended the local Yuendumu community school. Since finishing school, Alicka has devoted most of her time and talents to painting.
