Marlene Young Nungurrayi

  Marlene is the daughter of the celebrated artist Tommy Lowry Tjapaltjarri and also the adopted daughter of prominent artist Doctor George Tjapaltjarri. Born in the Central Western desert area in 1971, Marlene belongs to the Pintupi Language group. In addition to coming from a celebrated family who provided excellent tutelage in teaching and developing her painting skills, her husband Adrian Young Tjupurrula is also an acclaimed artist and the nephew of the late "Turkey Tolson".
  There are several dreaming that is the focus of Marlene’s paintings, however, two of her more favoured are the travels which recounts the trek path, and Kungka Kutjara which tells of women travelling to the locality of Munni Munni southeast of Kintore. Another is titled “Awelye” (Body Painting) - when women paint their upper torsos in motifs to compliment a specific ceremony being performed.
  Marlene is rapidly gaining a reputation as a fine painter and her works are easily identified through her use of vivid colours integrated with heavily coated paintwork characteristic of the Kintore region.
