Further Information

Along with her sisters, Kathleen and Poly Ngal, Angelina Ngal is custodian of her grandfather?s country, Aharlper. This is the foundation of her painting, translating the country into a series of tiny shimmering dots spilling across the canvas. Her paintings can be appreciated as striking
abstract works; however there are other complex layers of
meaning related to the geography and spirituality associated with her country. In particular, Angelina paints the Bush Plum known as Anwekety, a small black conkerberry, a plant of the area with fruits and flowers, which is also connected to the ceremonial business, especially for the women of
Camel Camp in Utopia.
