Alkalhere Country
Emily Kngwarreye, 1995 
Acrylic on Canvas, 60" x 36"
 

 

 

 

 

Emily Kngwarreye was the most highly regarded Indigenous Australian Artist of her generation. Over the course of a meteoric seven and a half year career she consistently pushed the envelope of painterly abstraction in the genre while still remaining true to the core concerns of all Aboriginal Art, depicting the power of the Dreaming stories of which she was custodian.

 

Emily's painterly abstraction explores the themes of land, family, and the seasonal renewal of plants and animals, the rhythms of the natural cycles.
