Alcaston Gallery is thrilled to present new paintings by Betty Muffler, Maringka Burton and Nelllie Ngampa Coulthard in Nganana Mukurikula Paintamilani – We Love to Paint! This exhibition showcases the sublime paintings of three senior Anangu women, as they each incorporate their innate spiritual knowledge to depict their beloved country in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in South Australia.

Betty Muffler is a highly respected Pitjantjatjara/Yankunyjatjara artist and a revered Ngangkari, a traditional Anangu healer. Embracing a subtle monochromatic palette, Muffler creates sophisticated and dynamic compositions through luminous lines and motifs to depict sacred Anangu sites that are relevant to her Ngangkari spirit. Her brilliant collaborations with fellow Anangu artist and Ngangkari Maringka Burton are a continuation of this distinctive visual aesthetic that resonates with the evolving power of the Ngangkari traditions. In 2020-21, a selection of major works on paper by Betty Muffler together with Maringka Burton were on exhibition at TARNANTHI Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide. Most recently Betty Muffler and Maringka Burton collaborated on two large-scale paintings for The National 2021: New Australian Art and these magnificent are currently on display at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney until 5 September 2021.

Nelllie Ngampa Coulthard is a Pitjantjatjara/Yankunytjatjara artist originally from the far eastern desert near Oodnadatta, who later moved to the community of Indulkana in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in South Australia.In her paintings entitled Tjuntala Ngurangka (Country with Acacia Wattle), Coulthard depicts her favourite native flora that surrounds her country with vibrant, luminescent colour and a distinctive and precise dotting technique.
