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.
