Originally from Haasts Bluff, in the heart of the Australian desert, Benita Multa Napurrula belongs to an artists community that joyfully celebrates a homeland which was seized as a result of various displacements. Less realistic than imagined, his landscapes have warm colors and naive forms of a lost paradise. These territories represented here frontally and not from the sky, as is often the case in Aboriginal desert painting. The presence of many oaks in the desert evokes fertility of the earth and the territory’s hidden wealth around the sacred site of Kunkayunti.
