Kiwirrkura Women’s exhibition at Paul Johnstone Gallery

SATURDAY 9th  –  SATURDAY 30th AUGUST

Opening Friday 8th August 11am

Every August for the past nine years Paul Johnstone Gallery has presented one of Papunya Tula Artists’ premier annual exhibitions. August in Darwin is a key date on the calendar of Indigenous art, with a huge enthusiastic audience making the much anticipated pilgrimage north to view the best Indigenous art from across the country.

This year at Paul Johnstone Gallery, Papunya Tula Artists invite you to an exhibition of twenty-four works sourced solely from the women artists of Kiwirrkura. This tiny community, located in the magnificent sand-hill country of the Gibson Desert in Western Australia, has become synonymous with some of the most innovative and mesmerising female Indigenous artists in Australia.

Yukultji Napangati, Florrie Watson Napangati, Kim Napurrula and sisters Yinarupa and Mantua Nangala, have for many years explored a delicate pointillist technique, resulting in images that echo the minimal yet breathtakingly beautiful country from where they originate. Simultaneously Josephine Nangala, Lorna Brown Napanangka, Nanyuma Napangati and Katarra Butler Napaltjarri will be featuring more painterly works with vibrant rich palettes for which they have become known.
