SARAH DANIELS

Minna Minna

Sarah Daniels was born circa 1933 is one of the highest Law women in her community, being consulted and deferred to on all questions.

Her traditional land is called Minna Minna and is located north of Lake Mackay in the Northern Territory, which she is the custodian along with her two sisters Mitjilli and Nancy Naninurra who are successful artists in their own right She lived the traditional life, travelling and hunting and performing ceremonies with her family during her formative years.

Sarah has continuously painted for Warlayiriti Artists and it is since 2006 that her career has continued to grow from strength to strength.

Her work has a certain complexity that is a unique painting style to many artists.

Layer upon layer of paintings sit on top of another each shrouding a Tjukurrpa (dreaming) that is unable to be observed by the eye.

She has a certain spontaneity and strength of brush mark that only an elder could achieve, leaving rhythmical tracks across the canvas..
