The works of internationally renowned Dorothy Napangardi are highly sought after, and with a number of recent exhibitions, including the currently running Dorothy Napangardi retrospective exhibition “Walkabout: The Art of Dorothy Napangardi” at the Seattle Art Musuem in the USA.
Gallery Gondwana present the following selection of sales catalogues for the works of Dorothy Napangardi… with more to come.
Considered to be Gallery Gondwana’s ‘most experimental artist’, Dorothy Napangardi is a Walpiri woman from Mina Mina, a significant women’s site in a remote area of the Northern Territory located near Lake Mackay in the Tanami Desert, north of Yuendumu. Her works depict this ceremonial site of origin for Walpiri women’s Jukurrpa (dreaming). Moving away from traditional iconography, her visual language is formed by intricate networks of dotted lines that cross and collide, expand and contract to create a strong but delicately manipulated surface tension. Her site-related perspective shifts constantly between the macroscopic and the microscopic.
