Desert Dots IV continues our annual celebration of dot paintings, this year showcasing the depth of field and soulful expression of three Utopia icons.
WHEN: 4 October - 16 December 2019
FEATURED ARTISTS: Motorbike Paddy Ngale, Polly Ngale and Kathleen Ngale.
The dot painting technique used by sisters Polly and Kathleen Ngale and Kathleen's husband Motorbike Paddy is called dump dump. The term was coined when Emily Kame Kngwarreye was painting in the 1990's. Different sized brushes are 'dumped' into the paint and then onto the canvas in quick successions to create superimposed dotting to fill the canvas.
Comments will be approved before showing up.
Dolly Mills Petyarre was one of the most talked about names in Utopia art back in the 90's with group and solo exhibitions across Australia's capital cities.
Now 72, Dolly wants you to know she's not finished yet and has been working on something special after a long hiatus.
Be inspired by the richness of the desert. Warm desert hues are the heroes of this calm yet inviting palette; dusty roses, bright yellows, desert reds and a hint of oasis blue.
More importantly, artworks represent ancient ancestral stories and a deep connection to the desert-like country of remote Central Australia.
