Gloria Petyarre, 'Mountain Devil Awelye', painted for Delmore Gallery at Uluru.

    Gloria Petyarre creates vibrant, abstract images that are distinguished by their variety and complexity, while remaining firmly rooted in her country Arlperre and the powerful Dreamtime stories that she inherited from her father. For 38 years she has been renowned as an artist, initially for her work with batik on silk, and for the past 28 years to great acclaim, for her acrylic on linen creations. She is now considered to be the best-selling living female Aboriginal artist. The leaf or "Bush Medicine" series, depicting the rushing movement of leaves with terse rhythmic brush strokes, has been heralded as one of her...

Online exhibition - Kathleen Kngale 'Bloom', collaboration with Pollon Art, New York.

Posted by Delmore Gallery on

Exhibition open online May 11 - June 22, 2016 If paintings talk, Kathleen Kngale’s paintings whisper, as if they have breathed themselves onto the canvas. While there are changes in pitch and tone of Kngale’s paintings: sometimes faint, sometimes forte, her Dreaming story of Arnwekety (also known as Bush Plum and Wild Plum), has been almost her single subject since she started painting in the mid 1980s. Kngale is a senior Anmatyerre woman from the Utopia region in Arlperre Country.

Emily Kngwarreye painting 'Yam Awelye', at Delmore, August 24, 1995.

Emily Kngwarreye painting "Yam Awelye" on the verandah at Delmore, August 1995. 1995 was a creative and exciting year for Emily Kame Kngwarreye at Delmore. In early April, searching for fresh inspiration, Emily asked Don Holt for the materials to create some works on paper in the same vein as the prints she had produced earlier with Studio 1 from Canberra and Theo Tremblay. Once she began, Emily quickly discarded the paper and proceeded to paint in the style of her early prints on primed linen. The result was the first of her 'Yam' paintings. Initially painting white lines on a black background...
