Byanimby, Goormbidja and Bulyunga by Mignonette Jamin
Byanimby, Goormbidja and Bulyunga are the names of three hills that dominate the country at Muthanoohgamaya, near the Fitzmaurice River, in Murrinh-patha country. They are also the names of Mignonette Jamin’s three sons. Vibrant in colour and with distinctive stylistic motifs, her paintings represent the spinifex grasses, water places, rocky ridges, bush palms and other features of her river country. They express the underlying energy of this place. As a traditional healer, Mignonette held cultural authority for her Country and culture, and was one of Waringarri’s senior, well-renowned artists, holding several solo exhibitions in nationally.
