Prints from the Desert RegionsFire and Water Suite - Prints from Yuendumu

Gwion


This important "Fire and Water" Suite of 12 beautiful etchings was created in May 2003 by some of Yuendumu's most significant artists, working in collaboration with professional art printers. Yuendumu is one of the most active centres for print making in the whole of the central and western Desert.

Dreamings of the Rain Being and also the spectacular Warlpiri Fire ceremony have inspired these images which are rich in ancient symbols of bushfires, waterholes, lightning, rain and desert soaks.

All prints are image size 16 x 19 cms. The etchings were created on zinc plates at Warlukurlangu art centre and returned for processing by master printers at Northern Editions in Darwin. The edition size was limited to 50. The complete edition is sold out.

Yuendumu artists have produced a substantial number of limited edition prints in the form of silk screen prints and etchings. One of the most successful previous sets was the "Yuendumu Doors" suite by Paddy Japaljarri Stewart and Paddy Japaljarri Sims which won the Telstra Award in 2001 for works on paper. It is now a collector's item, has increased significantly in value and is held by Australia's major art galleries.
