Lightning Mimi Spirit

The Lightning Mimi Spirit lives in the clouds. This Spirit has many rock axes at his disposal, and when he throws a rock axe they cause the lightning. The children might ask the question, well why do we have to have lightning and the reply would be, that if there is no lightning there would be no storms and if there are no storms there would be no rain and we all need the rain to sustain the balance of life. Paddy says this is the beginning of the water.


About Paddy Fordham Wainburranga

Paddy Fordham Wainburranga's paintings and carved balangjarngalain spirit figures are without parallel. The loose fluidity of line and form - in two or three dimensions - defies standard conventions. The borders of his paintings on bark and canvas are often crooked, the paint rough and unfinished but an impressive, gestural power dominates each painting. Paddy works with a raucous vigour on a plain background, painting vital spirit figures, writhing serpents, circles and dots without concern for symmetry, precision or minute elaboration.
