About Pinkalarta
Alma paints Pinkalarta, the home where both she and her mother grew up. It is located in
the Great Sandy Desert near Joanna Springs on the Anna Plains station. This is where she
lost her mother and her sister. Her work gives an aerial view of the landscape, showing
the mayi (bush food) and the jila (living water). Alma is a part of the Yulparija people who were forced to leave her home when the water began to dry up. She found her new home in the coastal town of Bidyadanga, and as a result, her desert imagery is expressed with the vibrant contrasts of the saltwater landscape.
Painted in 2004.
