About

Napurrurla is the older sister of Molly Napurrurla Tasman. They painted together in Lajamanu. Napurrurla was a tiny lady full of dynamic knowledge about her stories shown in the painting she creates. She was a caring dedicated lady who grew up in the Tanami Desert and walked along her story lines. Her depth of character and hardship she endured caused her to produce beautiful creations of Dreamtime using colourful bold linework and dots. When she was born her family knew only one way to travel across their vast lands and that was by foot using the stories contained in her art as a guide. The cattle industry saw the beginning of Warnayaka Warlpiri being forced from their lands. Napurrurla was a hardworking, busy person. Her love and dedication to Warlpiri Culture and family was born out in the art she created. Her art has been widely exhibited in Australia and overseas. She was a finalist in the 2010 Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Awards. Major Collections: National Gallery of Victoria and Artbank.
