About the artist -
Ruth Napaljarri Stewart was born near Coniston, about 75 km west of Yuendumu. “We walked everywhere with my family. It was a good life.” Although Ruth did her schooling at Yuendumu, a remote Aboriginal community 290 km from Alice Spring in NT of Australia, she and her family would frequently travel between Yuendumu, Mt Wedge, Napperby Creek, and Mt Dennison.
Ruth spent some time doing domestic work in Yuendumu, before finding employment as a health worker at Yuendumu Clinic. She also worked for a period of time for Yuendumu Council.
Ruth has painted with Warlukurlangu Artists since the 1980’s, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Yuendumu. She paints many different themes and stories that were passed down to her by her father. Ruth is the younger sister of the successful artist Paddy Japaljarri Stewart, a senior elder at Yuendumu. Her traditional country is in the Mount Allen region of the Northern Territory.
About the art centre -
Established in 1985, Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation is a not-for-profit organisation that is 100% Aboriginal-owned by its artists from the remote desert communities of Yuendumu and Nyirripi in Central Australia.
Located at Yuendumu, 300km northwest of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, the art centre is both a stronghold of traditional Warlpiri culture and an essential part of Yuedumu's community life.
Warlukurlangu Artists is famous for its gloriously colourful acrylic paintings and limited edition prints. The art centre has a national and international profile and its art has been featured in hundreds of exhibitions and publications in Australia and around the world.
Warlukurlangu means 'belonging to fire' in the local language, Warlpiri, and is named for a fire dreaming site west of Yuendumu.
