Women's Ceremonyby Patricia Jackson Napanangka
This beautiful artwork depicts the women's ceremonies which are carried out in Patricia's homeland and country around Kintore Community in the Western Desert of Central Australia. Patricia depicts her grandmother, Walangkura Napanangka's country and the important spiritual and cultural ceremonies which take place there.
Patricia uses a striking contrast of black and an off-white colour scheme to detail her story. Her dot work is precise yet strong with thick dot work.
