Exhibition Details

For E. Nampitjin, the most renowned artists in the Balgo community in the Great Sandy Desert, Western Australia, esteemed Law woman and proclaimed 'Queen of the Desert', painting is like her second language, as she paints persistently with passion and dedication, weaving stories from the Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) as well as her personal history and knowledge. Her daughter, Jane Gimme is a constant companion, and whilst their paintings ar aesthetically different, Mother and Daughter paint country and culture in a contemporary way that uniquely passes on the phenomena we have been fortunate to witness in our lifetime.
