The ReDot gallery is proud to welcome back the beautiful work(s) of Australiaâ€™s foremost Aboriginal art community, Papunya Tula Artists Pty Ltd.
This yearâ€™s show, the 5th in Singapore since the opening of the Gallery, comes hot on the heels of the recent double success for the community at the 25th Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (NATSIAA). Papunya doyenne, Makinti Napanangka, won the coveted 1st prize of $40,000 and her younger fellow Papunya Tula artist, Doreen Reid Nakamarra won the General Painting Award prize.
We are delighted to represent both these artists in Singapore. Indeed the new show will showcase two of Makintiâ€™s recent works along with breathtaking works by world renowned artists Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Ningura Napurrula, Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula, Yukultji Napangati (to name but a few) and emerging artists such as Danny Gibson Tjapaltjarri, Narrabri Nakamarra and Florrie Watson Napangati.
In total there will be over 30 works showcasing the very best from this power house of the Central/Western Desert art movement. Pulling on experience, and mixing in a dash of fresh new blood and promise, these sand and sun soaked canvases will explore and guide us through the wonders of life in the harsh Gibson Desert and the areas surrounding Lake Mackay.
Come and enjoy works which are of the highest international standards and be drawn into the link between land, spiritual being and paint soaked linen canvases as work from different generations of Aboriginal people hang side by side in the ReDot Gallery, teaching us of the ways of the oldest living culture on this planet.
