Collection: Rhoda Tjitayi

Rhoda Tjitayi "Piltati Tjukurpa"

Born in 1969 in Pukatja, South Australia, Rhoda Tjitayi hails from the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. She was raised by her grandfather from Nyapari and grandmother from the Tjala Minyma Ngura, a sacred place for Honeyant Women. Currently residing in Adelaide, Rhoda has recently teamed up with Art by Farquhar to bring her unique paintings to life. Her works showcase the ancestral creation story "Piltati Tjukurpa" passed down from her grandmother.

"Rhoda's art reflects her grandmother's story of two sisters in, Wanyinta and Alartjatjarra, who, along with their husbands, traveled Piltati in search of food. The sisters would hunt and gather food, but one day decided to eat some of it before returning to their husbands. This caused their husbands to turn into water snakes and swallow the sisters in anger. The ancestral creation story of "Piltati Tjukurpa" is rich in cultural heritage and Rhoda's works beautifully bring it to life."

When Rhoda lived in Ernabella she worked as a teacher at a school alongside sister Susan. Now Rhoda also hosts a summer school class at the University of South Australia. She also had a mural at the South Australian Art Gallery while now has a few pieces on display there. 

Rhoda has a blooming personality and it is always great to see her. We are sometimes lucky enough to have her & Susan paint at the gallery.
