Explications pour cette œuvre :

Ian Rictor (1960) has painted the significant sites of Tuwan, Atult and Kamanti (2 rock holes), located in the north of Spinifex Lands. Tuwan is a major site for the Nyii-Nyii Tjuta Tjukurpa (Zebra Finch Creation Line). This epic songline tracks a sacred 'Men’s' story following the antics and journeying of a group of zebra finch men as they head south to the coast. Ian Rictor lived in the vicinity of Tuwan in the Great Victoria Desert of Western Australia for the early part of his life as a traditional hunter gatherer with his immediate family. He was in his 20's when he first walked into modern 'civilisation'.

Relatives had been tracking the family, who were rumoured to have perished long before, for many months before finally convincing them to join other family in the settlement.

Ian Rictor was born at Artulin / Tuwan and is a custodian and traditional owner of Tuwan. Ian emerged from the bush with his small family group in only 1986 and they are the last of the known Aboriginal people to have remained living traditionally in the Western Desert. In 1997 when the Spinifex Arts Project first began Ian was keen to join the group of painters. He took to the medium of paint on canvas with fluency and has been painting his birthplace and surrounding country since then. He has had increased success exhibiting with the Spinifex Artists in London, Utrecht and many galleries in Australia. Ian is an impressive and skilled hunter, bush mechanic and craftsman. Ian lives in Tjuntjuntjara with his wife Kathleen Donnegan, also an artist and their extended family.
