George 'Hairbrush' Tjungurrayi is a senior artist of international standing who began painting for Papunya Tula Artists in 1976. The artist is well known for hisevolving abstract paintings that chronicle the Tingari cycle-a series of Dreaming narratives about Tingari men who travelled at the time of Creation-of whichthis artwork is about. ┬ĚThe painting presented here is similar in narrative to two other paintinqs by Tiunqurravi in the State Art Collection. However this paintinq differs in its form of abstraction, as the artist has used a series of connecting and concentric straight and curvedlines to represent the Tingari. Whereas, one of the two other worksis composed of lines and circles, and the other is a series of stripey lines.
