The Artist: Pammy Foster
"When you go out bush you see all different flowers. You can pick them and smell them - some of them smell very nice."
Epenarra artist Pammy Foster uses bright colours to capture the landscape of the Davenport Ranges, Pammy builds textures with layers of paint, alluding to the rocky nature of the landscape, densely grouped green trees and flowering bushes cover the canvas suggesting the work shows the land in the rainy season.
Wutunugurra (Epenarra) is described by the Indigenous people as Hill Country, it is nestled in the foot of Iytwelepenty (the Davenport Ranges National Park). The area is home to the popular camping sites of Whistleduck Creek and Policeman Waterhole and a unique variety of birds, insects and bush medicine.
Pammy Foster is a Waramungu and Alyawarr woman born in Tennant Creek and raised between Ampilatwatja and Wutunugurra (Epenarra). She began painting from an early age, learning from her aunt Susie Peterson and her grandmother Jessie Peterson, both well-known artists from Wutunugurra. Pammy paints intricate pieces depicting the bush plants and landscapes of the Wutunugurra region. She is a devoted artist who will finesse a canvas until she is completely satisfied with her work, resulting in highly detailed and layered pieces.
