Biography:

Meredith Curley is an artist from the small community of Pukatja (Ernabella) in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands. Meredith is the daughter of acclaimed artist, Imitjala Curley and the sister of artists, Madeline Curley and Maria Curley.

Meredith paints a major Dreaming story from her country in this artwork - the Ngintaka story. This is a significant story about a lizard man who stole a grinding stone and was subsequently pursued all across Country before meeting his fate. Meredith depicts a part of the story where the Ngintaka and his wife, the Echidna, were on their honeymoon in a cave. They ate a sweet treat, called "lerp", which is a sweet, starchy chrysalis that is found on eucalyptus leaves. 

Meredith is a talented artist who paints with fantastic depth and movement; her delicate swirling patterns and bright, vibrant colour choices successfully fuse the traditional dotting technique with a contemporary aesthetic.
