|Alcaston Gallery presents new paintings by Freddy Ken and Ray Ken.|
"Ray Ken’s meticulous and controlled lines are a vast contrast to the vibrant and dynamic gestures of colour that Freddy Ken carves into his canvases, however, both artists express a sophisticated knowledge of country and Anangu culture through their paintings. The story of Kulata Tjuta celebrates the importance of the traditional craft of carving spears and the deep connection to those, past and present, who have fought to protect country. Senior men have always taught young men how to make Kulata, this tradition is alive and strong in these colour soaked contemporary paintings."
- Natalie O’Connor, Manager, Tjala Arts
