Sonia Kurarra, Mangkaja Arts.

Sonia Kurarra grew up in the river country at Yungngora (Noonkanbah) in the Kimberly. Her work depicts the sandy Fitzroy River that runs directly behind her community, and the parlka [barramundi] and kurlumajarti [catfish] that were the survival foods of her youth and which, according to Mangkaja Arts Co-ordinator, Katie McGuire, are “etched into her psyche, coming out on her canvases.“ She is the winner of the 2010 Western Indigenous Australian Art Award for exceptional achievement.

Sonia Kurarra, Martuwarra, 2013, 120 x 120 cm. Mankaja Arts; ReDot Fine Art Gallery, Singapore. "Martuwarra is my river country; this painting is all about the Fitzroy River which flows down through Noonkanbah where I live. All kinds of fish live in the water, we catch big mob of fish here. I like Parlka (barrumundi). We catch catfish and brim here too. Nganku (shark), Wirritunany (swordfish) and Stingray also live here. These fish live in these waters long after the flood has gone."
