Nonggirrnga Marawili is inspired by the atmospheric effects that are created as country is brought to life through the movement of wind, water or unseen forces.

Based in Yirrkala in the Northern Territory, Marawili began her career as a printmaker, but in recent years has further refined her skills in painting to become one of the most distinctive Aboriginal artists working today.

Marawili does not simply document sites in country, she captures the dynamism of a living landscape, radically transformed and re-imagined to realise a very personal artistic vision.

This exhibition will reflect the span of Marawili’s career, with a focus on the last five years.
