Kay Willis Napurrula
Kay Willis Napurrula is a Warlpiri who was born in 1969 at Willowra in the Northern Territory. Kay started to paint in 1991, originally selling her works through the Jukurrpa Artists co-operative in Alice Springs. After the co-operative's closure in 2004, Kay has continued on working as an independent artist in Alice Springs. This painting depicts the Rockhole’s in her homeland, Willowra. This painting describes the Rockhole site at Willowra, a woman’s ceremony site; the circles show not only the waterhole but the women dancing around and around the Rockhole. Ceremony may be held for many reasons, to celebrate coming of age or change of season indicating new plant growth for food and migrating animals coming to the area again.
