About Ngura ( country)
Tangled with energy and flowing movement, Mungkuri’s ink drawings shimmer with romanticism and erudite recounts of country. Sweeping and inky pathways linked loosely together, connect a myriad of softly dotted rings, evoking a landscape abundant with hidden water holes.
Tender and boldly constructed trees spring up between interlocking rolls of mountain ranges, hinting towards the waves of a sand swept desert. Bordering the artwork with structured branches and pathways, Mungkuri creates a vantage point of peering into the drawing, viewing as if through a window.
"I've got good knowledge of horses, stockmen, the country. These things, everything, is my memory - my knowledge. I like painting my country, I like to paint the memories of my county."
