Review of Dorothy Napangardi retrospective - WA Sunday Times Magazine by Alison Wakeham

By Alison Wakeham, The Sunday Times Magazine, 20 September, 2020, Posted Sep 20, 2020

Napangardi’s remarkable life, which would take her from the desert to the United States and put her work in galleries and private collections around the world, is the subject of a landmark retrospective at Fremantle’s Japingka Gallery for the next five weeks.

Dorothy Napangardi would often paint sitting on the ground, legs tucked underneath her, cup of tea at hand and guided by a talent so great she would go on to write her name in the stars alongside Australia’s finest artists.

Dorothy Napangardi Roslyn Premont 1998

Napangardi’s remarkable life, which would take her from the desert to the United States and put her work in galleries and private collections around the world, is the subject of a landmark retrospective at Fremantle’s Japingka Gallery for the next five weeks. It is the first comprehensive survey spanning her celebrated career and includes many works never shown publicly. It also traces her relationship with her manager and close friend, Roslyn Premont, whose work with Napangardi at Gallery Gondwana in Alice Springs help set the artist on her historic course.
