2. Lucy Ward
Sugarbags | Acrylic on canvas
Artist | Lucy was born in Ngarangarri country that is now part of Beverley Springs Station (central Kimberley). Ngarangarri is the honey dream: ngara minbinya and honey is good tucker. Her dad and grandfather used to paint the Wandjina in the caves, and she used to watch them. For her, painting brings back good
memories of footwalking the country.
Ngarrangkarni Changeover Time 1 | Acrylic on paper
Artist | As a young man, Ngarra began a long and successful career as cattleman. During quiet times in the wet season, he would walk the country, attending to ceremonies of life, death and the afterlife: he was the senior lawman for ceremonies throughout a vast swathe of the Kimberley. In his 70s, Ngarra turned to art, developing an electrifying and sophisticated style of painting and drawing, producing works in ochre, acrylic and texta. He boldly combined his unparalleled cultural knowledge with a unique artistic vision.
