Collection: Gwenda Turner Nungurrayi

Gwenda Nungurrayi Turner, born in 1978 at Mt Allen Station (Yuelamu) near Yuendumu, is the daughter of Maureen Nampitjinpa Hudson. A seasoned artist with a profound connection to her indigenous roots, Gwenda's artistic journey began at the age of 15, inspired and guided by her mother, Maureen.

Gwenda's evolving artistic style bears the influence of her early exposure to her mother's stories and techniques. Over the years, her work has developed a distinctive and elegant signature, a departure from the style of her mother. Whether employing a minimalist palette of white on black canvas or embracing a vibrant spectrum of bold colors, Gwenda's creations have become increasingly intricate over time.

Drawing inspiration from her traditional country, Warlukurlangu (Bushfire Country), Gwenda often captures the essence of rivers and sand hills in her paintings. Her childhood experiences of traversing this land with her family, gathering native bush tucker and bush medicine amidst the jilja-marra-marra (sand hill country), are woven into the fabric of her art. The significance of the sand hills lies in their ability to support a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Following rainfall, the land experiences a rejuvenation, marked by the flourishing of grasses and shrubs that, in turn, attract local wildlife, facilitating a sustainable cycle of hunting for the community.
