Denise Johnson Napanangka
Denise Johnson Napanangka is a young woman from Ali Curung to the North of Alice Springs. Her artworks depict the important water dreaming stories and women’s ceremony stories. These important stories are passed on from Mothers to their children by telling the stories while drawing the information being taught in the sand as the traditional songs are being sung. Water Dreaming Stories are very important in the harsh desert environments of Central Australia. These stories are told to teach the younger generations about where they can go in search of water.
