  • About

    Helen Ganalmirriwuy is a senior artist working through Milingimbi Art and Culture. She is most well known for her weavings but also creates paintings that draw on her Liyagawumirr inheritance. In Mol mindirr (black conical basket) 2020 Ganalmirriwuy uses the secret recipe developed by her sister Margaret Rarru to dye her pandanus jet black before weaving it into an elegant conical form. The result is striking, particularly when considering most woven forms generally employ rustic oranges, yellows and reds.
