NONGGIRRNGA MARAWILI Ḏäl - Resilience

‘Resilience’ is a word that readily comes to mind when describing the work practices of several artists I have worked with over the past 35 years but none more so than Noŋgirrŋa Marawili. To practice one’s art is often challenging, yet after a lifetime of raising a family and being responsible for significant commitments surrounding cultural law together with managing the ageing proc ess, Noŋgirrŋa Marawili’s ḏäl (Yolŋu interpretation for resilience) to paint a body of new works is nothing short of spectacular. Her chosen media of mainly recycled paper and large-scale timber boards shows her capacity to overcome adversity, her strength and drive as an artis t, continually pushing boundaries and reaching new heights.
