Papulankutja Artists

Salt Lake - Nola Biddy Bennett


Artist Statement

“Salt lakes, slat pans or clay pans are a fundamental part of the balance between groundwater (water occurring naturally underground) and surface water, like rivers and streams. There are many salt lakes in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands.

Papulankutja or Blackstone Community was established after Ngaanyatjarra people walked out of Warburton mission in the 1970's and returned to their land in the shadow of the spectacular Blackstone Range west of the tri-state border. Papulankutja Artists was established in 2001 and incorporated in 2004 growing out of Blackstone's women's centre. After many years of working through the womens centre, Papulankutja Artists opened their own purpose built art studio in 2009. 
Papulankutja Artists are vert community focussed. Today, women and men, young people and old people, work together. By purchasing  an art work from an Indigenous owned and governed art centre you are supporting the community. 60% goes directly to the artist and 40% is reimbursed back into the art centre to buy materials so the artisans can continued to produce beautiful work and celebrate their culture.
