RANYDJUPI YUNUPINGU To create Ranydjupis print she first painted onto acetate which was exposed onto the plate. The exposure worked well enough to create the initial image onto the plate. Then Ranydjupi used bitumen paint and spray paint to slowly cover the details such as the raindrops, the fire, the clouds and the canoe. In between each layer the plate was etched. This technique was applied to add the textural tonal variation as she added detail to the plate. As the sevens sisters paddle in their canoe they see the fire that has been started and the rains coming to put out the fire. It is their tears. Ranydjupi Yunupingu is a Gumatj woman who lives at Wallaby Beach. She has produced prints at BukuLarrnggay Mulka Printspace. She works at the Mulka Project as a Cultural Director.
