Lena Young: Ngayuku Ngura
Ngayuku Ngura (238-23) by Lena Young of South Australian Iwiri Aboriginal Corporation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Lena Young was born in the Amata community of remote South Australia, although she is currently resides in Adelaide. Lena is at the beginning of her artistic endeavors, showing strong interest in creating hand built clay pots, embedded with robust mark marking.
Her designs are closely connected with traditional means of storytelling, where depictions of landscape translate walka design through drawing, writing, and any meaningful marks/pattern. Lena also reproduces Milpatjunanyi; story telling, involving making marks in the sand.
