Glenys Gibson Napaltjarri was born in 1968 in the community of Papunya, roughly 240 km northwest of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, Australia. Glenys is daughter to the highly acclaimed Australian artist Ningura Napurrula.

Glenys developed her artistic style through watching and learning her ancestral stories, from her mothers, aunties, and grandmothers, which has inspired her signature work, “Women’s Ceremony”.

Glenys’ works have participated in exhibitions all across Australia, leading her to be one artist of great renown in the aboriginal art community.

Glenys uses a vast range of colours to create bands of thick dotted lines that are accompanied with roundels and numerous symbols that represent women who have gathered.

Glenys Gibson Napaltjarri is a 2019 finalist in the prestigious Mosman Art Prize! More on Glenys Gibson Napaltjarri

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
