RIENHOLD INKAMALA

After the Rain, next to Papunya, NT

Rienhold was born in Alice Springs. His mother and father were both from Ntaria (Hermannsburg), and thus Rienhold’s father’s dreaming and his own are Mt. Hermannsburg.

As a young man, Rienhold was an ace AFL football player, but an accident resulted in a brain injury that stopped him from playing. Rienhold is married to Cathy (Jennifer) Wirri and has two daughters with her; watercolour artist Kevin Wirri is his father in law.

Rienhold taught himself to paint by drawing first. He loves to paint and draw his father’s country. He paints beautiful landscapes with great technique and unusual and interesting uses of colour. Hid grandparents, the Pareroultjas, taught Rienhold to paint when he was a school child, using pencils. Artist Ivy Pareroultja is like a mother to Rienhold.

Rienhold was featured on the cover of Tjukurrpa Calendar (by IAD Press) this year and has created a circular landscape which is to be projected up into the cupola of a dome at the University of NSW in Sydney.
