Currently on show from today 16 Nov 2016 to 24 Dec 2016 is ReDot Fine Art Gallery’s showcase of two concurrent exhibitions with Sarah Brown and Papunya Tjupi Arts.
Gallery 1: REMOTE – Sarah Brown Solo
A collection of 45 works on canvas and gesso boards, this exhibit features a stunning body of work inspired by the magnificent Western Desert Landscapes and Sarah’s life-changing contributions in Indigenous communities. Through her artworks, she hopes to capture the audience with its honesty and profound connection to the country.
Sarah is based in Alice Springs and is a nurse and health care worker who was instrumental to the set up of Purple House – the headquarters for the Western Desert Nganampa Walytja Palyantjaku Tjutaku (WDNWPT), a health organisation for Indigenous communities which translates to ‘keeping all our families well’.
Gallery 2: Nampatjunanyi (Paint and Draw)
Consisting of more than 15 works, the showcase focuses on emerging talents of a core group of women who have created the backbone of a new art centre. Recent jewels by Candy Nelson Nakamarra captivates with its complex iconography. Martha McDonald Napaltjarri’s work hints at the strong historical ties to the men’s work that emanated from the Papunya Tula movement of the early 1970’s.
