Located 700km east of Darwin in Yirrkala, a small Aboriginal community in North Eastern Arnhem Land, Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre is a First Nations owned and run hub of creativity. Prints & Poles is a showcase of this creativity, featuring an array of larrakitj and works on paper including a selection of etchings, which highlight the culturally rich and diverse practice of Yolŋu artists.
Buku-Larrŋgay – “the feeling on your face as it is struck by the first rays of the sun”
Mulka – “a sacred but public ceremony”
This print was completed by the artist during a workshop with Yirrkala Print Space and master printer Sean Smith in March 2020. Tragically, following an almost direct lightning hit on her house at t Gäṉgän she was hospitalized in Nhulunbuy and after returning home came back to ceremony at Gunyuŋara where she died suddenly. With the authority of her family led by eldest daughter, artist Djurrayun Murrunyina, it was decided to print the edition which has been signed by Djurrayun. The process used here is an initial collagraph plate which was then overpainted using a screen printed marwat (cross hatching brush) layer.
The print represents Garrimala, a billabong near the artist’s residence; the Dhaḻwangu clan homeland at Gangan.
