Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery welcomes the new year with a highly anticipated solo exhibition of new works by Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. This is the artist’s first exhibition following her popularly and critically acclaimed solo show in 2020, the moment eternal at Darwin’s Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT). Featuring more than 60 of Yunupingu’s works, this major presentation is the first time MAGNT has held a solo exhibition for an Aboriginal Australian artist.
Acclaimed for her extraordinary gift of mark making and storytelling, Yunupingu is one of the most celebrated and influential Aboriginal Australian artists. Her art practice remains independent of bark painting traditions that she inherited from the Yirrkala region/Yolgnu people of Arnhem Land where she lives. Her figurative and abstract works unleash a unique set of personal narrative paintings revolving around her own experiences.
