western desert

In the far-eastern regions of Western Australia, the Western Desert is home to several influential art centers including the world-renown Papunya Tula Artists. Stretched between the Gibson and Victoria Deserts, the landscape is vast and known for miles of red dust and blue skies. Some of the works from these regions are interconnected with the neighboring APY lands, but distinct and separate as revealed by their interpretation of law and country. 

The small township of Tjukurla servicing Tjarlili artists, share familial connection with nearby Warakurna to the south. The Martu people's country stretches from the Percival Lakes in the north, to Lake Disappointment in the south, and runs east, across the Canning Stock Route to the WA/NT border.
