Rothwell on the New Pitjantjatjara Paintings

Rothwell on the New Pitjantjatjara Paintings   A painting titled “The sound of moonlight striking the ground by night” set in squares shades of pink. Painted by Ginger Wilkilyiri of Nyapari. How subtle the rhythms elusive the brushstrokes. The sound of moonlight fills the nostrils the heart begins to roam … Moonlight striking ground inaudible low flybuzzing electric … Beneath the night in shades of pink. The viewer enters the desert … It is night. there is the sound of moonlight striking ground. Patrick McCauley
