Puuni Brown was born at Karrinyarra in 1979. She grew up in Papunya and spent many hours watching her mother Isobel Gorey paint. Puuni continues to reinvent her Mother's Tjukurrpa with a style distinctly her own.
Puuni paints Kapi Tjukurrpa (Water Dreaming) at the site of Wantupunyu, her grandfather and great grandfather's county, an important site for the regeneration of nature. Puuni's intricate and delicate line work create rhythmic and detailed works. Her use of fine, thoughtful brush work paired with a reduced colour palette create mesmerising compositions.
Puuni is an emerging talent at Papunya Tjupi and an artist to watch. Her work has been exhibited at Honey Ant Gallery (2021) in Sydney, and RAFT art space (2021) in Alice Springs. Puuni will be a part of a group show at McCulloch & McCulloch in Melbourne later in the year.
