Artist and art centre

Bridget Bunduck is a Tharnpa woman from Wadeye, and a self-taught artist. Her language is Murrinhpatha. She has worked at Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation (PWAC) since 2009 and is an integral part of the design and production team. Bridget is the great-granddaughter of Nym Bunduck – one of Australia’s most significant bark painters.

Bridget’s design is printed at the Palngun Wurnangat Aboriginal Corporation– which roughly translates to ‘women working together’ in Murrinhpatha. PWAC is home to a growing number of Indigenous female artists whose contemporary and traditional designs are represented through screen and lino prints, stencil work, sewing, weaving and painting. PWAC was founded in 1990 to provide support and economic opportunities to women and families of the Thamarrurr region. 

Art story

Bridget’s design depicts Nugluyguy (echidnas), which is one of the animals in her dreaming. There are many echidnas in Wadeye especially on the land around Air Force creek.
