The art of Napanangka Walke
Liddy Napanangka Walker grew up with her family living in various bush camps in and around the Tanami Desert, NT, before settling in Yuendumu, around 300km northwest of Alice Springs. Her life in these remote parts of Australia is reflected in her colourful and dynamic work based on the totemic responsibilities passed down to her on her patrilineal family side. She has described herself as “a very strong painter” and has become a widely-respected artist, a part of the group of female Indigenous painters known as the ‘Painting Divas from the Desert’. She uses a widely-varied strong/subtle colour palette and incorporates highly dynamic textures to complement the chosen colour palette depicting her Dreamtime subject matter. Her work is inspired by the Dreamings of her father and grandfather which include the goanna, bush potato, seed pods, bush tomato, and hopping mouse, but her main theme is ‘Dogwood Tree Dreaming’.
