about

Dorothy's work is often praised as being innovative and experimental, yet they reflect the artist's strong cultural and ancestral ties to the land. In this painting, Dorothy focusses on the Women's Dreaming, passed down from her late grandfather via her father, the work follows the long journeys of Women Ancestors from Mina Mina, a significant site in a remote area of the Northern Territory west of Yuendumu. Carrying their digging sticks the women walk and dance, visiting many significant sites, staying in some places to rest, going underground and later re-emerging.
