Maisie Campbell Napaltjarri "Umarra"
Size: 101cm x 76cm Composition: Polymer + Acrylic on Canvas. Maisie is imaginative in her use of colours, showing a propensity to experiment in order to achieve the effects she is seeking, yet preserving the inherent cultural integrity of her works. Maisie is enthusiastic about the preservation of her tribal traditions and worries that her children, at this stage are showing limited interest in her painting. She sees the recording of traditional sites and ceremonies on canvas as an important part of both sustaining and fostering the great traditions of her culture. The Haasts Bluff and Kintore areas have produced many notable artists and Maisie is one of the most interesting of a new wave that is emerging.
