Originally from Western Australia, Tim Payungka Tjapangardi celebrates the journeys of his clan's ancestors, the Tingari Men, during the Dreamtime. The Tingari are a group of mythical figures who travelled across the Australian continent during the Time of Creation, shaping certain sacred sites. Their journeys are recorded in numerous songs that are still used today for initiation purposes. Accompanied by their wives and apprentices, they travelled across the Great Australian Desert, founding sacred sites at each stage of a labyrinthine journey that is reflected in Tim Payungka's particularly modern work.
