SYDNEY.- Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery welcomes the new year with a highly anticipated solo exhibition of new works by Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu. This is the artist's first exhibition following her popularly and critically acclaimed solo show in 2020, the moment eternal at Darwin's Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT). Featuring more than 60 of Yunupiŋu's works, this major presentation is the first time MAGNT has held a solo exhibition for an Aboriginal Australian artist.

Acclaimed for her extraordinary gift of mark making and storytelling, Yunupiŋu is one of the most celebrated and influential Aboriginal Australian artists. Her art practice remains independent of bark painting traditions that she inherited from the Yirrkala region/Yolgnu people of Arnhem Land where she lives. Her figurative and abstract works unleash a unique set of personal narrative paintings revolving around her own experiences.

Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu has been exhibiting in Australia and overseas since 2007. Notable exhibitions include the moment eternal: Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu, Museum of Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT), Darwin, 2020; Australia: Antipodean Story, Padiglione D'Arte Contemporanea (PAC), Milan, 2019; and an installation of bark and larrakitj paintings titled ‘Gäna (self)’ in the Encounters sector, curated by Alexie Glass-Kantor, at Art Basel Hong Kong in 2018. Yunupiŋu was a finalist in the 2017 Wynne Prize, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney. In the same year she won the 2017 Telstra NATSIAA Bark Painting Award. In 2016, The artist was selected for the 20th Biennale of Sydney: The future is already here- its just not evenly distributed, curated by Stephanie Rosenthal. Yunupiŋu was also selected for the 18th Biennale of Sydney: all our relations in 2012 by curators Catherine de Zegher and Gerald McMaster. In 2008, she won the 25th National Aboriginal Art Award and was also selected for the prize in 2007 and 2009. Yunupiŋu’s paintings are held in major public collections in Australia, including National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth; and Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Darwin.

This is Nyapanyapa Yunupiŋu's ninth solo exhibition at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney.
