Ngalim-Ngalimbooroo Ngagenybe

In Ngalim-Ngalimbooroo Ngagenybe (From my women), Shirley Purdie pays homage to the women in her family, representing herself through collective knowledge, culture and values. Acquired by the Portrait Gallery in September 2019, this non-representational self portrait is informed by Aboriginal ways of seeing and understanding the world. Each panel contains a story, producing a portrait that is a complex kaleidoscope of personal history, identity and connection to country.
