About Milkali Kutju
In Anangu culture the word Milkali blood is a very sensitive word and can be used offensively, however, in this painting Milkali kutju means one blood. The painting is about Indigenous and non Indigenous working along side one another, learning and sharing two different cultures ngapartji - ngapartji (50-50). It doesn't matter what colour or race we are, it's about what's below the surface, that we are there for one another and that life is too short to allow grey scales to come between us. As a culture we can learn from one another by moving forward, closing the gaps and not blaming one another for our fore-fathers actions - whether they were good or bad choices. In this painting you will see a lot of colours. Our mind will tell us only what we want to see, however, in this painting there are only two colours - black and white, with different shades of red below the surface. Whenever you look at this painting, appreciate what we have, because it is only for a short period of time.
