The Artist / Design -
Judy Napangardi Watson (c. 1925 - 2016) was born at Yarungkanji, Mt. Doreen Station, at the time when many Warlpiri & other Central & Western Desert Peoples were living a traditional nomadic life. Judy was taught painting by her elder sister, Maggie Napangardi Watson. She painted alongside her at Warlukurlangu artists for a number of years, developing her own unique style.
She was at the forefront of a move towards more abstract rendering of Jukurrpa by Warlpiri artists, however her work retains strong kurruwarri, the details which tell of the sacredness of place and song in her culture. Judy Napangardi Watson exhibited work throughout Australia & around the world. Her works are featured in several major collections.
This card is based on her artwork Mina Mina Jukurrpa (Mina Mina Dreaming)
