rachael comes from the third generation of Lionel women painting at Ernabella Arts. rachael draws inspiration for her paintings from the stories and messages she receives through her dreams. Kapi Wankanya represents one of these dreams and tells a story of living water, sacred water. In the context of the dream Rachael speaks of the sensation of floating in water and also feeling its healing force inside her body. "Kapi Wankanya is a powerful water story." 

ernabella arts is a place where elders, young women and men practice and develop their art, in order to sustain, support and promote their cultural heritage, and to improve the lifestyle of their community members.

 

planet donates the full retail margin (after the cost of framing, gst and artist's commision) to a charity nominated by ernabella arts centre; the western desert dialysis centre. the center assists those in community with dialysis treatment and transport to and from the treatment. this is signifigant as treatment is often quite far and the goal is to enable people to stay in community.

planet is honoured to have these works in our showroom. 

Success! Feel free to continue shopping or head to your cart .
