Artwork Story

The dotted forms represent the Yakatjerri (Bush Grape) that grows in abundance in the desert area around the country where Lorna lived.

 

Lorna Fencer was a senior artist from Lajamanu in central Northern Territory. She was a skilled painter of decorative body designs for ceremonies and traditionally painted on coolamons and digging sticks for ceremonial purposes. Lorna has been making art in the Western form since 1986. Vivid colour and liberal use of paint are signatures of her work. She gained prominence as a contemporary Aboriginal artist and is represented in International and Australian Collections. Copyright Mimi Aboriginal Arts & Crafts
