ESSAY:
This painting is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Short Street Gallery that states: ‘Alma paints Pinkalarta, the home where both she and her mother grew up. It is located in the Great Sandy Desert near Joanna Springs on Anna Plains Station in Western Australia. This is where she lost her mother and sister. Her work gives an aerial view of the landscape, showing the mayi (bush food) and the jila (living water). Alma is part of the Yulparija people who were forced to leave their homelands when the water began to dry up. She found her new home in the coastal town of Bidyadanga and as a result, her desert imagery is expressed with the vibrant contrasts of the saltwater landscape.’
