Reanne Nampijinpa Brown
Reanne Nampijinpa Brown was born in 1989 in Mparntwe (Alice Springs). She has lived in Yuendumu all her life, attending the local school. She first painted for Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation in 2002, when she was thirteen. Warlukurlangu Artists provides an outlet for Warlpiri young artists to paint their cultural heritage. Reanne paints Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming) and Pamapardu Jukurrpa (Flying Ant Dreaming) that she has inherited from her father and grandfather’s side. These Dreamings relate directly to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it. Her first endeavour into print making at Warlukurlangu was in 2006 where she produced her first etching.
This sculpture reflects the artist’s observations, interactions and experiences while working in the Warlukurlangu art centre, reflecting the space as one of family gatherings and artistic experimentation.
