Bark Ladies: Eleven Artists from Yirrkala celebrates eleven daring artists – all women who, throughout their lives, have collectively pushed the boundaries of contemporary Australian painting.

This publication by Myles Russell-Cook accompanies the exhibition Bark Ladies: Eleven Artists from Yirrkala, which celebrates the National Gallery of Victoria’s extraordinary collection of work by Yolnu women artists who
have worked at Buku-Larrngay Mulka Centre (Buku), in North-East Arnhem Land.

Included in this publication are works by Nancy Gaymala Yunupinu, Gulumbu Yunupinu, Barrupu Yunupinu, Ms N. Yunupinu, Eunice Djerrknu Yunupinu, Nongirrna Marawili, Dhambit Munungurr, Mulkun Wirrpanda, Naminapu Maymuru-White, Malaluba Gumana and Dhuwarrwarr Marika. By bringing together these eleven artists, this book highlights the extraordinary tonality, scale, diversity and materiality of their work.
