About Ngayuku Ngura - My Country
Betty Chimney's paintings are evocative of the vast and rugged desert country of Indulkana on the Eastern side of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands.
The country here is expansive, dotted with small shrubs and carpeted in clusters of rocks and pebbles. Betty spent many years living near to Iwantja Creek at the newly established Indulkana community. As all of the members of Betty's family had passed away, she was raised by Alec Bakers father, a senior law man for the region.
In her striking paintings, Betty marks out the rugged and stoic country of Indulkana. She maps out the creeks, roads, rocks and dry creek-beds, highlighting changes in the landscapes through colour shifts.
Capturing beauty in the sparsity of shapes and tones, Betty's paintings reveal the true essence of Yankunytjatjara desert country.
