Pintupi artist Eileen Napaltjarri is an esteemed second generation artist of the Papunya Western Desert movement. Born in the Haasts Bluff community in 1956, Eileen moved to the new community at Kintore in the early 1980s. Eileen began painting in 1999 after her mothers death. The main subject for Eileens paintings is her father’s traditional country at Tjiturrulpa, a rockhole site west of Kintore. She represents this country with rhythmical parallel and arching lines of sandhills, occasionally disrupted with openings and waterholes. Her palette of rich and vibrant colours reverberates with tonal intensity.
