Kngale is a senior Anmatyerre woman from the Utopia region in Arlperre Country. A remote, beautoful and uncompromising Central Desert region in the Northern Territory, and the homelands for the Anmatyerre and Alyawrre people.
When Kngale paints Arnwekety, she is vivifying the Bush Plum’s cycle of production, rest and regeneration. She is both recalling and calling-upon its seasonal cycle and all the relationships: human, animal, organic, elemental, and ancestral that enable and depend upon its regeneration.
This exhibition is a curatorial collaboration between Delmore Gallery and Pollon Art, New York. Drawn from the archives of Delmore Gallery's collection, is the first time that these important works by Kathleen Kngale have been offered for sale.
