Joylene Reid Napangardi

Artwork Year



92 x 121 cm


acrylic on canvas


Joylene’s works are primarily ‘Women’s Tingari’ depictions of her country and the sacred women’s sites between the communities of Kintore and Kiwirkurra in the Western Desert of Central Australia. Her people would conduct important ceremonies at these sites and tell stories of travelling ancestors. Joylene’s choice of colours usually represent the more traditional pigments used for ground designs and body decoration. The stories and the iconography that

are central to the knowledge base of Western Desert, people provide a valuable resource to younger artists.

Joylene Reid Napangardi comes from a strong artistic lineage: her parents are

Walangkura Napurrula and Kalara Tjapangarti.
