This work is representative of her later vigorous works which she executed in a rapid confident motion. Vertical stripes sear the canvas and map the body-painting used in Awelye — women’s public song ceremonies.
Despite the stylistic variations, all of Kngwarreye’s work is about one story — Alhalkere — her country, her people, her dreamings. The panels are among her boldest expressions — raw, gutsy and tough — and evoke the confidence and unique vision that characterise Kngwarreye’s short career as a contemporary Aboriginal artist.Share
