Amanda has painted some of her Grandmother's country called Mina Mina located well south of Balgo, in the Great Sandy Desert.
Amanda has interpreted her Grandmother, senior and major artist Dorothy Napangardi's style of painting.
She has depicted the movement of ancestral women across the country as they danced, encountered others, and interacted in significant events, which occured along the way.
She has painted how the country appeared to her grandmother (told through stories), of dry salt lakes and rockholes, interlaced with ancestral tracks.
Personal note from Laure:
There is no other word for this artwork than AMAZING...!
Amanda Nungarrayi Lewis mastered a somptuous visual effect that makes this piece of art absolutely hypnotic.
The complexity and sharpness of the artist's work is mind blowing.
