Kirsten Nangala Egan was born in 1989 in Yuendumu, a remote aboriginal community 290 kms north west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia and grew up in the bush in Wayililinypa. Kirsten paints her Father’s dreaming, Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming) and Warlukurlangu Jukurrpa (Fire Country Dreaming), her Mother’s Mina Mina Jukurrpa and Pampardu Jukurrpa (Flying Ant Dreaming) and her grandfather’s Ngapa Jukurrpa (Water Dreaming). The tradition of painting is passed down by her mother Madeleine Napangardi Dixon and her grandmother Jeannie Nungarrayi Egan. The Dreamings relate to her land, its features and the plants and animals that inhabit it on the recycled tote bag. KIRSTEN NANGALA EGAN © Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, 2022.
