My Mother’s Country

by Experiment Station
“My mother’s country, Marrapinti, that’s what I paint about. The ancestors were coming this way and they entered the place called Wilkinkarra [Lake Mackay]. I paint that, and the places Ngaminya, Wirrulnga. They traveled and arrived at Lake Mackay from Yunala. Yunala is the place of bush-potato Dreaming.
