Kukula Mcdonald

*1985
from Papunya
language Luritja

Kukula is a young Luritja woman and has been working from the studio at Bindi since 2002. In the past she has painted Cockatoos, predominantly Black Cockatoos and Wheelchairs. She knows where to find “big mobs” of Black Cockatoos in the Central and Western Deserts. She also has a keen eye and extensive knowledge for wheelchair brands, styles, colours, accessories and is able to tell you who has what kind of wheelchair “out bush”. In the last few years Kukula has started painting ‘Uttumpatu’ the rocky outcrops that form ridge lines or hills beside the community of Papunya. These landscape formations hold cultural significance for the people of Papunya. Kukula has been incorporating Red Tailed Black Cockatoos into the landscape of Papunya, big mobs or a lone individual soaring in the sky. These new paintings reflect great developments as an artist and on a personal level.
