Biographies

A Warlpiri artist and one of the initiators of the painting movement in Yuendumu, White's work is widely exhibited and is in major public and private collections.

Born c.1935 and lived at Yuendumu, Maggie White was one of the senior women whose work in the early ’80s helped initiate the painting movement in the Yuendumu community. She had been showing with Warlukurlangu Artists since the Yuendumu painters’ first exhibition at the Araluen Arts Centre in Alice Springs in October 1985. She exhibited in Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, the Gold Coast, at the Portsmouth Festival in England 1987, Sydney, Canberra, the Lewis-Warra Gallery in Seattle, USA, and Darwin. Her work was also included in the Windows on the Dreaming exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra in 1989. The gallery has one of her paintings in its collection, as do the SA Museum and many private collections. Her work retains a looseness and boldness expressive of the importance which the artist attached to the ritual act of invoking the Dreamings by representing them in European materials.
