Linda Syddick Napaltjarri paints the great Tingari narratives of her ancestral homelands near Lake Mackay in the Gibson Desert. Linda incorporates images of her Pintupi country and of the spirits of her late relatives as a way to remember them and to proclaim to future generations that I was there. The artist also paints images of the great Christian narratives which she encountered at the Lutheran mission at Haasts Bluff, and her memories of her familys first contact with white settlement when they walked in from the desert in the mid 1940s.
