ReDot Fine Art Gallery is extremely honoured to present our annual Papunya Tula Artists exhibition. This year’s show will be dedicated to the last remaining works of the late Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula. This will be Tjupurrula’s fourth and final solo show and will mark the end of a stunning 30 year career during which he achieved great international success.
JOHNNY YUNGUT TJUPURRULA – a collection of 26 recently released works from Papunya Tula Artists and the late artist’s estate. He was born north-east of the Kiwirrkura Community circa. 1930 at the soakage site of Tjangimanta, one of the most remote parts of the Australian outback.
The works in this exhibition are a visual representation of the sacred soakages and waterholes of the Gibson Desert, including the western fringes of Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay). These sites also have great ceremonial significance and the related stories have been passed down through countless generations via song, dance and painted imagery.
