Nyapanyapa Yunupingu - Art Collector

Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, Untitled, 2016, bark painting, 126 x 71 cm. Courtesy the artist and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery.

This stunning exhibition of paintings on bark, board and paper continues Nyapanyapa Yunupingu’s exploration of the mark and is a progression of her individual style. Using traditional earth pigments, her work is prepared with black or red ochre. Rhythmic crosshatching and figurative components are then overlaid in white ochre. The intriguing feature of Yunupingu’s practice is that she paints not to please an audience but rather to experience the making of a mark. Like many abstractionists, her work is process driven and improvisatory. The authenticity of the gesture penetrates the viewer.
