Description 

‘That’s the place where I was born. That’s my country. I was born a wallaby woman at Kuruyultu.’

The oeuvre of Eunice Napanangka Jack spans over three decades, circling around the great narrative of her birth at Kuruyultu – near the small community of Tjukurrla in Western Australia – the events leading up to it, and her early childhood memories of leaving the nomadic life on the Western Australian and Northern Territory border behind and moving to Haasts Bluff.

Her art encapsulates the memories of country, a country which she has only been able to visit a few times since she was a little child; a country, in which she has not been able to live again. Childhood memories of Kuruyultu.
