This 2002 work by Yukultji Napangati already shows her exceptional strength and sophistication in depicting the landscape that has seen her being awarded the 2018 Wynne Landscape Prize. Perceived linear abstraction typifies Pintupi works that are, however, deeply entrenched in the landscape, sacred lore and ceremony. This particular work by Yukultji Napanagti represents the flora and the movement of the winds over the and hills of her sacred country.

It was in 1984 that the very last Pintupi family group walked in to Kiwirrkura from the desert having lived a completely traditional lifestyle up until then. Known as the Pintupi Nine, amongst them were the now renowned artists, Warlimpirrigna, Walala Tjapaltjarri, Yalti and Yukultji Napangati.

Yukultji has been a many times finalist in the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2017, and 2018. She was awarded the Alice Prize in 2012, been commended for the highly prestigious Art Gallery of New South Wales Wynne Landscape in 2011 and 2013 only to take out the highest honour in 2018.
