Name: Josephine Lennon
TRIBES: Matjtutara (Coober Pedy) and Miring (Ceduna)
Josephine Lennon was born in 1972. Painting has always been her passion and it was a natural part of her family - she learnt from her father, mother and sister and her creative talents emerged at a young age.
Her early works were very traditional dot style depicturing local flora and fauna:
gulda (sleepy lizards), walga (wild tomatoes) and mungada (quangdong);
recently her style has developed into a unique expression of looking down from above on her country (munda).
Josephine's use of lines and colour evoke the undulating and changing land formations created from winds of change in her Munda. She states that her works are of the country around Ceduna South Australia which depict tali tjuta (many sand hills), walpa (wind) and kapi (water soaks), all important parts of the survival of her people.
She is also influenced by her mothers Tjukarpa (dreaming) stories of the Bunda Cliffs along the Nullarbor Plain.
