ReDot Fine Art Gallery is proud to announce the 2nd Singaporean show of innovative works of the Martumili Artists.
Following on from last year’s first ever, sell out, international show we will be exhibiting the latest and most exciting works from one of the Western Desert’s newest and most refreshing Aboriginal art communities.
Martumili Artists was established in 2006 by Martu people living in the communities of Parnpajinya (Newman), Jigalong, Parnngurr, Punmu, Kunawarritji and Irrungadji. The incorporation was a lengthy process due to the desire to find the right balance between the production of public art and the protection of important cultural knowledge. The Martu people observed other communities and arts centres and engaged in long discussions until they decided what they would, and what they would not paint. This considered approach has reaped amazing results, as well as quick domestic and international recognition from the art community.
Martu artists now have their works placed in significant collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, The National Gallery of Australia, Artbank, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the National Museum of Australia as well as most private collections of Aboriginal art. The Adelaide Biennale will present a beautiful large collaborative work by the senior artists, many of which will be showing here in April, again their only international show in 2010.
New works from Milly Kelly, Bugai Whylouter, Nancy Chapman to name but a few will all be on show at our Keppel Road premises, along with many other amazing canvases.
The exhibition opens on Friday 9th April at 7:30 pm and runs until Wednesday 28th April 2010.
