APY Lands

WORKS

 

The APY (Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara) Lands are a vast and remote territory situated in the northwest corner of South Australia. The principal communities, dotted across some 100,000 square kilometres of arid country, include Amata, Indulkana, Kaltjiti, Mimili, Ernabella (which boasts the longest-established aboriginal art centre in Australia, founded in 1948), Pipalyatjara, and Wararru. The region includes Uluru (Ayers Rock). Amongst the Anangu people the dominant language groups are Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara.

 

It is an area rich in artistic energy – with numerous thriving art centres. The work produced, for all its obvious richness, shares both a formal intricacy and a distinctive colour-filled intensity.
