Karen Napaljarri Barnes – ‘Budgerigar Dreaming’ Online Exhibition

Budgerigar Dreaming (Ngatijirri Jukurrpa) is a new series of paintings by Karen Napaljarri Barnes, a Warlukurlangu artist based in Yuendumu in the Northern Territory.

The series of works refers to the Budgerigar Dreaming story. The Jukurrpa (Dreaming) sites shown in these paintings for Ngatijrri (Budgerigar) are at Yangarnmpi, south of Yuendumu. In her paintings, Barnes has used a non-traditional way of painting the Jukurrpa. She has used a more realistic depiction of the birds and a very abstract representation of the landscape and colours.
