Noŋgirrŋa Marawili is one of the most distinctive Aboriginal artists working today. From her home in Yirrkala, Marawili has revolutionised the art of north‐eastern Arnhem Land while adhering to cultural protocols. In her prints, drawings and paintings on paper, board, bark, larakitj and aluminium, Marawili captures the landscape, radically transformed and re‐imagined in a very personal artistic vision. Her interest is in the atmospheric effects created as country is brought to life through the movement of wind, water or unseen forces. She is not simply documenting sites of importance, she is capturing the dynamism of a living landscape, as she connects with the sentience of country.

Noŋgirrŋa Marawili: From My Heart and Mind presents the span of Marawili’s career and offers an insight into her unique approach. Through stunning images, insightful essays and an interview with the artist, this book highlights the strength of Marawili’s practice and her important contribution to the art of Australia.

The works have been drawn from public and private collections.
