Mantua Nangala on her works in Ceremony

The story that I paint is Marrapinti. It is a sacred woman’s place that is my Ngurra (Country); it is a very important place for my people. I like to have colours that are close but are a little bit different. When you look at the canvas you can see movement, I like the way it changes over the canvas. I like to make my paintings slowly, every dot slowly and carefully. When I paint I’m thinking about my Country and my family, it is very relaxing for me and makes me feel good. Palya.
