Region: Central Desert

Size: 31 x 41 cm

Catalogue Number: 13797DN

Status: SOLD


In this delicious work Dorothy uses a myriad of coloured dots set against a black background creating a shifting sea of wonderfully harmonious colour that gathers and disperses across the canvas. Like the sandhills in constant flux around and through the artist’s country so too does this painting move, backwards and forwards, the rippling effect produced so like that of the wind’s tracks in the sand.

This work depicts a major women’s ceremonial site known as Mina Mina, the artist’s custodial country, located near Lake Mackay in the Tanami Desert, north of Yuendumu in the Northern Territory.
