Margaret Lewis Napangardi

Warlpiri artist Margaret Lewis Napangardi carries a rich heritage of Aboriginal art in her veins. Her father Paddy Japanangka Lewis, was an outstanding painter from the small outstation of Nyirripi. Her sister Dorothy Napangardi, was one of the foremost Aboriginal artists of Central Australia, creating a powerful body of work based on minimal designs associated with the Mina Mina Women’s Dreaming site. Dorothy’s untimely death in 2013 in a vehicle roll-over while on a group hunting trip out bush, was a serious loss to the art world and to all of Margaret’s family.

Margaret Lewis Napangardi has maintained a wide scope of stylistic approaches in her painting. Her fine dot paintings are reminiscent of her sister Dorothy’s work. At other times Margaret uses a bold colour-filled style that could owe more to artists like Judy Napangardi Watson, who lives in the same community of Yuendumu.

Margaret Lewis Napangardi was born in 1952 at Mt Doreen Station, located in Warlpiri country and currently being allocated to traditional owners under Native Title agreements. Margaret has seen the expansion of artistic activity in the settlement of Yuendumu from 1985, when the art centre began operations.

Margaret Lewis Napangardi has focused on the Jukurrpa or Dreaming stories that belong to her clan, and has sought innovative ways to express her connection with those ancient stories. This solo exhibition at Japingka Gallery is an opportunity to see a selected range of works by this well-connected artist.
