Barbara Reid [1962-]

Barbara Napangarti Reid is a Ngaanyatjarra woman whose works depict her birth country surrounding Tjukurla in the Gibson Desert, Western Australia. Painting in a strong and powerful style reminiscent of her internationally renowned stepmother, Ningura Napurrula, Barbara adds her own individualistic flair to her trademark Dreamings that are mostly associated with women and women's ceremonies. After several successful exhibitions, Barbara’s works are fast gaining a well-earned reputation as indigenous fine art of the highest order, and therefore, have been extensively collected both here and overseas.
