Collection: Naata Nungurrayi

Date of Birth : c.1932
Country : Kintore, NT
Language : Pintupi

Naata began painting for Papunya Tula artists in 1996.

Naata‘s depictions include the Marrapinti rock hole site, using a minimal palette of orange and red hues, with white and black to create breath taking depictions of her Dreamings. The combination of subtle variation and precise technique creates an organic quality that makes her dreamings come to life.

Naata often painted with her sister Nancy Ross until her death in 2010 – in 1999 Naata, Nancy and six fellow Walungurru women worked together to create a major collaborative painting for the Art Gallery of NSW. In 2003 Naata‘s painting was used as a motif on an Australian stamp.

Her work is represented in major Australian collections such as Artbank and the National Gallery of Victoria, and is highly regarded internationally.
