‘Ningura Napurrula reached the pinnacle of acclaim amongst the first generation of Papunya Tula women painters who initiated a new phase in Western Desert art and inspired artistic and generational renewal. In the act of painting, Ningura brings the metaphysical power and authority of her Dreaming onto a physical plane. Her works represent an evolution of ceremonial expression from designs in sand, on skin, to canvas. Napurrula embraced this potent medium with a vitality born of her deep cultural connection to country, to which her paintings are a lasting testament.’ Jane Raffan
