Biography

Evelyn Nampijinpa Daniel is an artist born in an aboriginal community of Central Australia, in 1956. The region where she was born, Yuelamu, plays an important role in her work.

She has been painting since 1979 and started working besides her older sister, Dolly Nampijinpa Daniel, recognized as an influential and renowned artist in the Central region of Australia. Her sister died in 2004, but Evelyn Nampijinpa Daniel continued with her work.

The two sisters come from a long line of aboriginals and got use to a nomadic lifestyle during their youth.
It is due to this fact and to their aboriginal community that Evelyn Nampijinpa Daniel paints in order to promote and perpetuate her culture.

The artist's paintings are full of ancentral details that nourish her unconscious and her imagination. She uses all the traditional iconography that she can. Each piece tells a story, a narration of the stories of journeys and life stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

They are mainly the memories of her mother, father and grandfather that she tells through her paintings. Even though just forms are perceived at first glance, Evelyn Nampijinpa Daniel draws a path for us, bringing us to an strategic place for the land, animals and plants.

Her pieces are present in private collections, as well as in several group exhibitions which are dedicated to the artist in Autralia, The Netherlands, Zurich and The United States.
