NEW PAINTINGS FROM Tjala Artists of the APY Lands feature their vibrant use of colour and dynamic movement.
The Seven Sisters is a strong story often depicted by Tjala artists and this exhibitions features a stunning Mitakiki collaborative by Mona, Naomi and Tjimpayi featuring a stellar constellation of bright reds, deep purples and a luminous use of white floating across the canvas. Similarly Sylvia Ken’s work is a striking contrast of deep crimson, pinks and reds with lighter orange and white defining spaces and yet merging together towards the central pathway.

Nyunmiti Burton’s painting of country Ngayuku ngura features an undulating nebulus of colour and variation. The work of Wawiriya Burton has a renewed vigour with her linear pathways and roundels framed by blocks of writhing colour and a larger use of surrounding space to striking effect.

Using more subdued tones but no less striking are the identifiable works of Ray Ken and Illuwanti Ken.
