Lynette Corby Nungurrayi was born c. 1956 at Haasts Bluff. She works a number of mediums, as well as painting in acrylic and screen-printing onto garments. She is also a former assistant teacher of Luritja in both written and spoken language. Lynette’s paintings are gaining a considerable following, and her work has been part of several exhibitions, including the 2003 Telstra Awards.

Art Gallery of South Australia

Lynette was chosen for the 20th Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award Survey Exhibition. The painting, Women’s Law and Culture Meeting at Mt Liebig, is now in the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia

Lynette’s artwork is associated with Women’s Ceremony and Law. In this artwork she has depicted, in the more traditional colour palette, the country surrounding the sacred women’s sites of Marrapinti, to the west of the Pollock Hills in WA. Here she shows the travelling paths leading to these sites.

In the dreamtime, a large group of senior women camped at the rockholes making the nose bones which are worn on ceremonial occasions. The Women later travelled east gathering edible Berries known as Kampuraarpa (Desert Raisin).
