Scott Livesey Galleries 31st May – 21st June 2014
Two of Australia’s most recognised and highly regarded Indigenous artists, George Tjungurrayi and Warlimpirrnga Tjapaltjarri, join forces for a rare exhibition at Scott Livesey Galleries in Melbourne. George and Warlimpirrnga are giant figures, both in terms of their cultural standing within their community as well as their place in contemporary Australian art.
The eighteen works in this show explore Western Desert dichromatic minimalism in its purest form. The exhibition includes many large paintings of pulsating hypnotic line work representative of the vast open sandhill country of the Gibson Desert from which their inspiration has been drawn.
A beautiful thirty-two page catalogue featuring high quality reproductions of all works in the show, along with two insightful essays by former Papunya Tula Artists employee Luke Scholes, has also been published to accompany this outstanding exhibition.
