Perfect gift

This was the perfect gift for my friend, Anitha, who received Australian citizenship last Thursday. She arrived from India in 2010 and work with me until I retired in 2013. Since then she has worked extremely hard, been promoted, and now has two beautiful Australian children with her husband, Dinesh.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Otto Jungarrayi Sims was born in 1960 at Yuendumu, an Aboriginal community about 290km northwest of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.

He spendt much of his childhood travelling in the surrounding country.

Otto finished high school in Yuendumu and has continued his studies through the indigenous college in Alice Springs where he achieved a bachelor in Business.

He has worked for Yuendumu Council and the Tanami Goldmine in the 1990s.

Otto’s father, Paddy Japaljarri Sims, passed stories down to Otto that were, in turn, passed down by to him by his parents, and their parents before them for millennia.

These stories relate directly to Otto’s country at Kunajarrayi and Yanjilpirri, its features and flora and fauna.

Otto has a passion for hunting Kiparra (Bush turkey), and can often be seen driving down backroads around Yuendumu in his four wheel drive.

Otto has painted for Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an Aboriginal owned and governed art centre located in Yuendumu, since 1990, and was elected to its executive committee in 2002 and Chairman of the art centre in 2007.

In March 2008 Otto travelled to Bahrain for the opening of a Warlukurlangu group exhibition at the La Fontaine Centre of Contemporary Art.
