There is a mysterious, entrancing nature to Ronnie Tjampitjinpa paintings, where time and place are melded in the eternal stories of his Dreaming. Ronnie remains an important influence on a new generation of painters. Ronnie Tjampitjinpa exhibited extensively throughout the world and is included in all major Australian and international art collections

Stories from the Tingari Cycle, a secret song cycle sacred to initiated men, are the subject of many of Ronnie's paintings. The Tingari are a group of ancestral spirit or Dreamtime beings who brought law and culture to the people of the Western Desert, travelling over vast distances. In the course of their many adventures and misadventures, they performed ceremonies to create or even become the physical features of the sites they visited, such as rocky outcrops, waterholes, trees, salt lakes, and ochre deposits.

Ronnie Tjampitjinpa's work is highly characteristic of Pintupi art, using simple, bold, geometric designs, often made up of maze-like circles or a central bull's-eye connected by strong lines. There is a mysterious, entrancing nature to these paintings, where time and place are melded in the eternal stories of Ronnie's Dreaming. Their complexity may not always be clear to the outsider, but they reward further study. Ronnie can be considered one of the first major artists to have linked the painting of these 'song-lines' or 'travelling Dreamings' with the use of modern materials.

Ronnie's work has been shown in international exhibitions many times and he is represented in major private collections such as the Donald Khan Collection and the Kelton Foundation in the United States of America. He prospered as an artist during the late 1980’s winning the Alice Springs Art Prize in 1988. The following year he travelled to Melbourne for his first one-man show at the Gallery Gabrielle Pizzi. Subsequently he was included in ‘Australian Perspecta 1993’ at the Art Gallery of NSW. From 1993 Ronnie was Chairman of the Kintore Outstation Council, residing at his outstation at Redbank (Ininti). His work was displayed prominently in Sydney at the Jinta Gallery in 1998 in their ‘Pintupi Men’ exhibition.

These successes have established him as one of the masters of desert art. He was there at the beginning and will continue to work strongly into the next century. Ronnie Tjampitjinpa is the personification of a linkage to the traditional ways and beliefs that certainly will be modified by the current generation of painters. Whilst his works may be regarded as ‘contemporary art’ in the great galleries of the world we should remember that his beliefs and background exemplify the ancient nature of his people. His is one of the last of the genuine desert nomads. Consequently his art takes on a meaning and importance well beyond the expectations aroused when we are confronted with visual art of our own Euro-centric culture.

It was not until March 1972 that Bardon became aware of Ronnie's presence amongst the artists who were working in the Great Painting room. Under the tutelage of Uta Uta, his father's younger brother, Ronnie tentatively began experimenting with a raft of new materials. Driven by a desire to express his knowledge and experience of ritual amongst his cultural peers, Ronnie's first paintings are replete with overt depictions of finely decorated ceremonial objects. (Luke Scholes, 2011)

Ronnie was born near the site of Muyinnga and was initiated at Yumari, near his birthplace. Ronnie and his younger brother Smithy Zimran came in from the bush at Yuendumu and later joined their relatives in Papunya, where he worked for a while as a labourer. He was one of the Pintupi men who gathered on the verandah of Geoffrey Bardon's flat before joining others in the Men's Painting Room and producing works that sometimes disclose aspects of men's ritual.

In 1983, following the establishment of Walungurru in 1981, Ronnie returned to his ancestral lands. Over the next decade he emerged as one of Papunya Tula's major artists, pioneering the scaled-up, bold linear style characteristic of Pintupi work of the 1990s. In 1988 he won the Alice Prize and the following year his first solo exhibition was held at Gallery Gabrielle Pizzi, Melbourne. In 1993 the artist made a significant contribution to Perspecta at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Ronnie Tjampitjinpa born (around 1943) in the region near Muyinnga, about 100 km west of the Kintore Ranges in Western Australia (and approximately 500 km west of Alice Springs). His family traveled extensively across Pintupi territory, moving through this region and also around Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay) which straddles the Western Australia - Northern Territory border. Ronnie Tjampitjinpa was initiated into Aboriginal Law at Yumari, near his birthplace. Ronnie began painting at the beginning of the Papunya artistic movement around and in 1988 won the Alice Springs Art Prize. His works follow the Pintupi style, which depicts dreamtime and the landscape by joining together strong circles with connecting lines. Ronnie has exhibited extensively throughout the world and is included in all major Australian and international art collections.

Ronnie won the Alice Springs Art Prize in 1988. Ronnie Tjampitjinpa work follow the Pintupi style, which depicts dreamtime and the landscape by joining together strong circles with connecting lines.

Ronnie Tjampitjinpa has exhibited extensively throughout the world and is included n all major aboriginal art collections. Ronnie Tjampitjinpa work is represented by major collections throughout the world, his paintings are  in very high demand sought after by Australian and international art collectors as well as Auction Houses.

Ronnie resides with his family at Kintore, an aboriginal community that was established in 1981. Originally Ronnie came in from the bush at Yuendumu and later joined relatives living in Papunya, where he worked as a labourer, helping with the fencing of the airfield. He started painting around 1971 at the time that the desert art movement began in Papunya and over several years he moved between Papunya, Yuendumu and Mt Doreen Station. Ronnie's work follows the Pintupi style of strong circles joined together by connecting lines relating to the people, country and the Dreamtime. The primary images in Ronnie's work are based on the Tingari Cycle which is a secret song cycle sacred to initiated men.

The Tingari are Dreamtime Beings who travelled across the landscape performing ceremonies to create and shape the country associated with Dreaming sites. The Tingari ancestors gathered at these sites for Maliera (initiation) ceremonies. The sites take the form of, and are located at, significant rockholes, sand hills, sacred mountains and water soakages in the western desert.  Tingari may be poetically interpreted as song-line paintings relating to the songs (of the people) and creation stories (of places) in Pintupi mythology.

Ronnie can be considered amongst the first wave of artists effectively linking such ancient stories with modern mediums. During his time at Papunya Ronnie talked of returning to his traditional country. This became possible when Kintore was established in 1981 and Ronnie moved there with his family shortly afterwards. He has been a committed artist since his earliest involvement with the central desert art movement and has since emerged as one of the region's major painters. Today, Ronnie remains an important influence on a new generation of painters. Ronnie's works first appeared in Papunya Tula exhibitions during the 1970s, then in commercial art galleries in Sydney and Melbourne throughout the 1980s, including successive exhibitions at Gallery Gabrielle Pizzi from 1987 to 1990. In 1988, he won the Alice Springs Art Prize and he had his first solo exhibition in Melbourne in 1989. The artist was later selected for inclusion in major representative Aboriginal survey shows including: Flash Pictures at the Australian National Gallery; Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami; and other noteworthy exhibitions in Paris, Moscow, St Petersburg, Düsseldorf and Munich. His work is held in many public galleries and private collections, including the National Gallery of Australia and all the state galleries.
