Dorothy Napangardi is a leader of the contemporary Aboriginal art movement. She hails from the traditional country of Mina Mina in the Northern Territory’s Tanami Desert, but spent most of her adult life in Alice Springs.

While there is a tendency to understand Aboriginal art as abstract, it is actually representational. In the case of Napangardi, her intricate dance of dots trace the movements of her women ancestors as they traverse the Mina Mina landscape. She references songlines and dance circles, expanding and paying homage to visual representations of Kurawarri (Dreaming).

Works like Untitled testify to Napangardi’s singular talent. With a bird’s eye view, perhaps spurred by crossing Sydney by plane, she pays tribute to the enduring vitality of her country.

Napangardi is represented in all public collections and internationally at the MET in New York. She was the second Aboriginal artist to be given a solo survey exhibition at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary art. For collectors of Aboriginal and contemporary art, Untitled is a rare to market find.
