“Inside the Museum and Art Gallery, Napangardi’s Salt on Mina Mina looked electric amidst an array of 67 paintings, some of the strongest this award has seen. Here her white grid of undulating lines triggered a dynamic play of collision and tension as they worked their way over receding patches of black. In this abstract canvas the traditional iconography from her familiar lines is no longer present; however the white dots depict encrustations of salt stretching to infinity, etched with the tracks of the women walking over the sacred ceremonial site of Mina Mina.” – from Review of the exhibition by Courtney Kidd, Artlink
She also was the subject of a mojor retrospective at the MCA in Sydney in 2003 and was selected as an exhibiting artist for the Sydney Biennale in 2012. Dorothy passed away in June 2013.
