Yulyurlu Lorna Fencer Napurrula is the first retrospective of the desert artist Yulyurlu Lorna Fencer Napurrula.
Yulyurlu Lorna Fencer, a senior Warlpiri artist from Lajamanu, was born around 1924 and began painting on canvas in 1986. She soon developed her characteristic, loose gestural style of painting using increasingly vibrant colours unique to this region. Her most consistent theme throughout her career was the depiction of the yarla yam (Ipomoea costata) and the smaller wapiti yam (Vigna lanceolata).
Works on this theme dominate in the show, but depictions of bush tomato, bush plum, caterpillar, seeds and water can be found in many of her over-layered colourful paintings.
