Four sisters from the large Numina family in Darwin continue to document and paint traditional stories from their family homelands in Central Australia. The sisters are Anmatyerre speakers and grew up on Stirling Station located between Tennant Creek and Alice Springs. The Numina sisters began painting under the tuition of their mother Barbara Mbitjana and their famous aunties Gloria Petyarre and Kathleen Petyarre.

The sisters represented in this exhibition are Lanita Numina, Caroline Numina, Selina Numina and Sharon Numina. Based on women’s Dreaming stories from Anmatyerre culture, the subjects of the artworks cover womens ceremonies and body paint designs, stories related to bush medicine and bush foods, Emu Dreaming, Dingo Dreaming and Water Dreaming stories.

The paintings by this skilled family of artists reflects the movement and travels of Ancestral forces across the country that created living history in the landscape and ceremonies carried out by people on the land. The imagery is fluid and incorporates many of the traditional symbols shared by Desert people across a wide area of Australia’s Central Desert.
