TJUKURPA

Emily Kngwarreye

13.04.2021 Day 103 [Tjukurpa] Tjukurpa is the creation period and it forms the basis of all Aboriginal knowledge. It is a complex, all-encompassing belief system that defines religion, law and moral systems for Australia’s indigenous people. It comes from their ancient ancestors who created, and brought life to the earth, during what non-indigenous people know as ‘Dreamtime’, or the ‘Dreaming’. In Aboriginal languages, there are no such words as ‘Dreamtime’, or ‘Dreaming’, but these terms have been adopted by non-indigenous people to describe Aboriginal beliefs. Painting: Emily Kngwarreye 1995, Utopia
‘Awelye, Yam Dreaming’ 82 x 56 cm acrylic on stretched canvas. From april 13 2021: Aboriginal Art Uk / Hallidays Mill Gallery in Strou London.
