Nonggirrnga Marawili’s highly sophisticated paintings on bark reflect the more organic patterns of her culture, history and environment of eastern Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.

Marawili now at the height of her creativity, is continually moving towards very contemporary imagery, distilling the commonly recognised ancestral cross-hatched motifs and designs to make art that is utterly refined and thoroughly unique. The simplicity of her designs is deceptive.

Marawili currently can be viewed at the Art Gallery of Western Australia, one of 16 national finalists selected for the Western Australian Indigenous Art Awards 2015, 4 July – 12 October 2015.

Exhibition closes: 25 July 2015
Location: Seva Frangos Art, 271 Rokeby Road, Subiaco WA 6008
