Early visionaries
22 February - 26 March 2017

We are pleased to be able to offer you five early APY and Western Desert paintings via private sale that sold through Marshall Arts (now Galerie Zadra) prior to 2008.

The artists are Ginger Wikilyiri (Tjungu Palya), Hector Burton (Tjala Arts), Kunmanara Golding (Warakurna Artists), and Kunmanara (J.) Baker (Ninuku Arts & Tjungu Palya). These significant artists are all represented in public and major private collections.

Their early works are an important key to understanding the aesthetic developments that have emerged from the art centre movement in the central and western deserts. Such works form the foundations of current desert studio practice and endure as touchstone for younger generations. While artistic styles and media may have changed with the times, the Tjukurrpa that informs contemporary art practice continues as surely as it always has.
