Barbara Reid Napangardi

Barbara Reid Napangardi, the daughter of famous Aboriginal Artist Ningura Napurulla, was born near Tjukurla Western Australia. Her paintings represent important women’s dreamings, portray a ceremonial site near her place of birth and depict her traditional country in the Gibson Desert. Her use of bright colours in thick layers of paint is one of her trademarks characteristic of her region. Her style is an example of Aboriginal paintings where the designs used in the paintings often have a number of interrelated symbolic meanings.
