Ngaanyatjarra: Art of the Lands documents the six art centres (Warakurna, Papulankutja, Tjarlirli, Kayili, Maruku and Tjanpi) that make up the Western Desert Mob group. This book combines the aesthetics of an art catalogue with the rigour of an academic art history, and contains both essays and stories of Aboriginal peoples perspectives on their own artistic heritage. The Ngaanyatjarra Lands has a unique place in the art history and art story of remote Australia, in the last decade artistic practice and storytelling have been explored with a freedom that has led to some beautiful and fascinating work of perhaps greater diversity than the better known work of Papunya. This beautifully illustrated presents the complexity, richness and interconnectedness of people and art in the Western Desert.
