About

Judy Napangardi Martin was born about 1940 in Warlpiri country near Yuendumu in the Tanami Desert. She is the eldest daughter of famous painter Lorna Napurrula Fencer, and is half sister to Judy Napangardi Watson. Judy Napangardi Martin began her painting during the 1980s and 1990s at Lajamanu Community, located between Yuendumu and Wave Hill in the Northern Territory.

Themes

Judy Napangardi Martin paints the significant Women’s Dreaming stories located around Yuendumu. These sites include Mina Mina and Yurmurrpa, her mother’s Dreaming site.

Style

Judy Napangardi Martin uses bold line structure and contained areas of rich colour to map out her Dreaming stories. Her most recent paintings mark a distinctive step forward by the artist. She is re-affirming her ceremonial rights and obligations, as part of the Napangardi skin group, to her traditional sites in the Tanami Desert. These paintings are an artist’s statement of celebration, of renewal and of inheritance. Aboriginal art status – Mid career artist.
