Lynette Corby Nungurrayi Tree Roots Australian Aboriginal Art Painting on canvas LC1671


The provenance of works of fine art is of great significance, especially to their owner. There are a number of reasons why painting provenance is important. A good provenance increases the value of a painting, and establishing provenance may help confirm the date, artist and the subject of a painting. It may confirm whether a painting is genuinely of the period it seems to date from. Documented evidence of provenance for an object can help to establish that it has not been altered and is not a forgery, a reproduction, stolen or looted art. Provenance helps assign the work to a known artist, and a documented history can be of use in helping to prove ownership.

All artworks of our Gallery come with a AAA Gallery Certificate of Authenticity and where possible, working photographs and/or a photo of the artist with the artwork and/or video of an artist in working process of creating an artwork.

Skin Name: Nungurrayi
Born: c.1958
Region: Mount Liebig
Subjects and Themes(Dreaming): My Country, Tree Roots. 



Lynette Corby Nungurrayi was born in 1958 at Haasts Bluff in the Northern Territory, then moved to Mt.Liebig in the 1980s. She began painting for the Papunya Tula Artists movement around 1990 and works perfectly with several

artistic mediums such as painting in acrylics, screen-printing onto garments, silk printing, basket weaving and stretching.  

The multi dimensionality of Lynette’s work shows through in her usually bold and vibrant executions. The colour she uses is dramatic yet balanced. When painting on linen or canvas, Lynette creates a blend of colour that adds depth and dimension to her work, creating an almost 3-D effect.

Her works have become very popular and have been widely exhibited in numerous corporate and private collections, both in Australia and abroad including the 2003 Telstra Awards after in 1997 she entered the Northern Territory Fashion Award with a self-designed screen-printed garment.


Linette's work depicts the stories of the Tree Roots. She creates a blend of colour that adds depth and dimension to her work, creating an almost 3-D effect.
