Dorothy Napangardi Robinson Biography

Dorothy Napangardi (1952- 2013) was a highly regarded Warlpiri artist born around Mina Mina, west of Mt Doreen and Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. Dorothy Napangardi began painting ‘bush tucker’ designs in 1987 when her children were still quite young and well after she moved from her ancestral Warlpiri homelands into Alice Springs, where she has lived the greater part of her life.

Later Dorothy Napangardi began experimenting with her painting technique. This, along with visits back into her homelands in the 1990s, allowed her to refine her visual representation of her Jukurrpa (Dreamings) and stories associated with Mina Mina, culminating in the finely patterned, minimal paintings for which she is now so widely recognised.

Dorothy Napangardi’s Jukurrpa includes Salt Pan images and Digging Stick Dreaming (Karnta-Kurlangu). In 2001, Dorothy Napangardi won the coveted Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award for a black and white work, Salt on Mina Mina. In 2002, she was presented a major painting survey at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. Dorothy Napangardi’s innovative and distinctive painting style has earned her a reputation as one of the most important Aboriginal artists working today.
