Artist & Artwork:

Michelle Possum:

Michelle Possum was born at Napperby Station, northwest of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory. She was taught to paint by her father, Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, the most renowned painter of the founding group of Papunya artists. Michelle’s work has a strong connection to her father, family, and land. Her paintings incorporate strong figurative elements and important topography relating to her family's country, such as the abundance of food and water. In addition to sacred landmarks and iconography, Michelle's artwork includes important bush tucker and waterholes, creating a meaningful connection to modern kitchens, the source of such provisions.

Grandmothers Country Design:

The Dreamings that Michelle Possum paints come from Yuelamu on her home country at Mt Allan. These include the stories of Seven Sisters Dreaming, Bush Tucker stories including Seed Dreaming, Bush Coconut, Fire Dreaming, Goanna Dreaming, and Grandmother’s Country, many of which she combines together in complex interwoven designs. Mainly depicting the overview of maps of traditional Country from her family lands, Michelle describes the many important cultural sites she knows well. Her paintings have gained wide popularity partly due to the fact that as we come to understand the iconography, the paintings make fascinating narratives for a western audience. They are populated not only with plants, food resources, and waterholes, but also with people sitting in the landscape – men with hunting implements and women with digging sticks and coolamons.
