'My Country'
Kudditji Kngwarreye

A4938, 60 x 60cm acrylic on linen

Kudditji Kngwarreye was born circa 1928 in the Central Australian desert and lived a traditional life prior to western contact. Prior to his artistic career he had numerous jobs including a stockman. With a heavy loaded brush he paints his country with broad strokes and a combination of bold colours and soft fusions, accentuating the natural colours of land and sky over various seasons. This is his grandfather’s story and shows a secret place that is for men only.
