Papulankutja (Blackstone) is a remote Aboriginal Community, located at the foothills of the Blackstone Ranges in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands, Western Australia. Papulankutja Artists evolved out of the Women’s Centre where painting was encouraged as an activity since 2001. Once registered as an Aboriginal Corporation in 2004 the artists were now able to govern their art centre independently. In 2009 Papulankutja Artists moved into a purpose built art centre with rooms for men and women to paint. As well as their paintings Papulankutja Artists are known for their innovative fibre work and carvings from local wood
About the Artist
Elaine was a bush baby born near a rock hole. The country painted by Elaine reaches from Jameson to Blackstone, over the red sand dunes, along the Blackstone ranges and over the expansive flood plains and clay pans. This country floods after the wet season rains at the base of the ranges, water covering the land feeding the ground for the next cycle of wildfowers and grasses. The grasses full with seeds for bush damper. Paintings mark singing rock up in the ranges and the story of wati kutjarra (2 men/ goannas) is told – The story of Blackstone. Elaine’s paintings are scatterings of colourful dotting marking the flood plains rich with life after the rain. A line scores the artwork depicting the songline, the way for travelling ancestors and now replaced by a contempory marking – the unsealed road to Jameson. Elaine is a strong woman, colourful and proud with her wisdom and strength depicted in her works.
