Priscilla Singer

Priscilla Singer is a senior Pitjantjatjara woman who lives at Indulkana in the APY Lands of South Australia. She is the eldest of six siblings that include the artist Trish Singer. As well as a painter she is a teacher at the Indulkana School. She describes her painting as being about the family connections that are all important to Anangu. In Pitjantjatjara, the word ‘ngura’ is a definition for the physical geography of land and country. However, ngura also has a more richly imbedded meaning as a place to which someone belongs; defining where an individual comes from, family connections, skin groups, and language.
