Juluwarlu Group Print Maarga and His Family by Sharona Walker
Sharona is a young emerging Yindjibarndi Artist who began creating yarranga marni (carved boards) and acrylic paintings in 2017 as part of Juluwarlu's Nyinyart Yinda Water Artists Cultural Futures Residencies Programs. Over the past 18 months, Sharona has created some wonderful artwork that draws upon themes of her Yindjibarndi relationships with rain, yinda (deep permanent pools), and ijarri (spings) that bring life to the plants, animals, fish and insects that have nourished Yindjibarndi people for more than 2,000 generations. Sharona's artwork has been shown and sold at Perth-based exhibitions and in the Pilbara.
This artwork is about Maarga, the Yindjibarndi creation spirit, having to move from place to place with his family because of the damage done by mining on his Ngurra.
