Jukurroa Dreaming by Janet Golder Kngwarreye
The bush yam is a staple food source that was harvested by traditional land owners before colonisation. The ideology of this dreaming teaches us about sharing abundances with others whilst never taking more than what is needed from the environment.
Janet Golder Kngwarreye b. 1973
Janet began painting in 1987, and was taught by her grandmother, Polly Ngale. Her sister Belinda Golder is also an accomplished artist from the Utopia area in Central Australia. Most recently, Janet has developed a unique style to depict the Jukurroa dreaming of the bush yam, for which she has been given cultural knowledge and permission to paint.
