Kudditji Kngwarreye

Emu Dreaming, 2012

ACRYLIC ON LINEN 35.6 x 35.6"

This painting depicts an interpretation of the Emu Dreaming site and ceremonies associated with Men's Business. Over a decade ago Kudditji began to experiment with paint to eradicate the pointillist style altogether and use a heavily loaded paint brush to sweep broadly across the canvas in stages, similar to the western landscape plane, these paintings were romantic images of his country, accentuating the color and form of the landscape including the depth of the sky in the raining season and in the summer heat.
