This powerful body of work, Pink Lightning reveals an engrained understanding of Noŋgirrŋa Marawili’s environment, family and history through her expressive and organic forms of painting. By combining natural materials such as earth ochres and stringy bark with a striking use of pink pigment (recovered from recycled print toner cartridges), Noŋgirrŋa alludes to her strong cultural ties, whilst simultaneously crossing artistic boundaries that only a senior woman of her strength could even contemplate. 

 

Most recently a major installation by Noŋgirrŋa Marawili was unveiled at TARNANTHI: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, presented by the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide. TARNANTHI Artistic Director Nici Cumpston, together with AGSA Assistant Director, Artistic Programs Lisa Slade, wrote:

 

In the case of Madarrpa clan artist Noŋgirrŋa Marawili, residual magenta ink from cast-off printer cartridges is reborn as a new crimson-hued ochre. Marawili paints daily in the courtyard of Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre, wielding pigment with expressive power across bark, paper and larrakitj.[1]

 

In 2018-19, the Art Gallery of New South Wales presented a major solo exhibition of work by Noŋgirrŋa Marawili, From my Heart and Mind, which spanned the artist’s career with a comprehensive publication to accompany the exhibition.

 

This year Noŋgirrŋa was thrilled to be announced as the WINNER of The Roberts Family Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Prize, as part of the prestigious Wynne Prize 2019 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney. Not long after Noŋgirrŋa was also announced WINNER of the 2019 Telstra Bark Painting Award at the 36th Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Awards at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Darwin.

 

Noŋgirrŋa Marawili has recently been announced to exhibit in the forthcoming prestigious BIENNALE OF SYDNEY from 14 March – 8 June 2020.
