Enter below to win a double pass to the Emily Kam Kngwarray exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia. Immerse yourself in Alhalkere - Paintings from Utopia.
In the 1990s Emily Kam Kngwarray (c.1910–1996) emerged as one of Australia's leading painters of modern times. Kngwarreye's prominence is no overnight sensation; it finds its roots in a lifetime of ritual and artistic activity. Her energetic paintings are a response to the land of her birth, Alhalkere, north of Alice Springs—the contours of the landscape, the cycles of seasons, the parched land, the flow of flooding waters and sweeping rains, the patterns of seeds and the shape of plants, and the spiritual forces which imbue the country. Kngwarreye's vision of the land is unique; her paintings challenge the way we look at art by Aboriginal Australians. Emily Kam Kngwarray: Alhalkere—Paintings from Utopia traces the brief but impressive career of an artist who started painting in the public arena when she was in her eighties.
The winner will be announced on Friday 16 February.
Congratulations to our winner, Nicole!
