The Artist -
Nelly Patterson was born out in the bush in 1938. She grew up as a traditional Anangu girl near Pipalyatjara in the Anangu Pitjatjantjara/Yankunytjatjara Lands, with no whitefellas or roads. These days Nelly lives in Adelaide.
As a senior traditional woman, Nellie is a custodian of the stories and lore which has sustained her people throughout generations. Nelly has an intimate knowledge of the Seven Sisters Story – an epic Tjukurpa (creation) story in which a man, Wati Nyiru chases seven sisters across the whole of Australia, shaping the land as they went. This painting depicts some of the places where the sisters camped.
