This 2020 retrospective exhibition for Dorothy Napangardi (1952- 2013) shows the artist’s journey towards the refined style of the later Mina Mina paintings that established her career as an outstanding artist. All artworks from the exhibition are available for sale, comprising 36 paintings and 11 limited edition prints.

The earliest work dates back to 1997 where we see the first aspects of the Mina Mina story painted between 1998 and 2001. From these early compositions we see the structural elements that are transformed into large visions of Mina Mina ceremonial site. The artist develops and reworks the subject in paintings spanning the years 2003 to 2009. In 2002-2003 the artist’s work was presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney in an exhibition titled Dancing Up Country.

The exhibition honours the life and art of Dorothy Napangardi. The first such exhibition was held at Seattle Art Museum in 2018. This exhibition is presented with the support of Roslyn Premont of Gallery Gondwana, whose long association and promotion of Dorothy’s artwork has given so much to this story and to this tribute exhibition.
