David was drawn to this artwork from the Warnayaka Collection from Lajamanu in the NT, currently on exhibition at Winya’s city office in Sydney. He loves the energy and the story behind this artwork by Molly Jinjingarli Tasman. Its called “Seed Dreaming”.
The most important thing expressed by the artists at Warnayaka Arts in Lajamanu across the generations is the need to preserve and pass on the knowledge of Warlpiri culture. This encompasses not only art, but includes language, social structure, law and country. In doing so it is understood that excellence in art, prosperity from art sales, employment opportunities and preservation of pride in being Warlpiri will result. Each painting is embedded with this culture knowledge often depicting the dreaming stories that when painted, strengthens their connection to land and family.
The majority of the income from sales from this collection at the MANY NATIONS art gallery go to the artists who live and create their art in Lajamanu, NT.
