And They Danced Their Way Across Country, October 2018, Cooee Art PaddingtonStory
This artwork is inspired by knowledge given to her by her father, Paddy Japanangka Lewis and his
sister Mitjili Napanangka Gibson about her actual conception site — a small claypan which is
associated with the Bilby Dreaming to the south west of the two large claypans of Mina Mina —
(Napangardi’s custodial country).
This work painted in 2007 came after a 'Back to Country' trip to Mina Mina in 2006 with Dorothy's
extended family. The roundels and concentric circles with intercepting lines depicts her Bilby
Dreaming site and a use of colours that is different from her minimalist black and white works.
