|Alcaston Gallery present new paintings by renowned artists HECTOR BURTON, RAY KEN, MICK WIKILYIRI & BRENTON KEN from the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, South Australia. With intuitive use of colour and movement the artists have created beautiful paintings inspired by Anangu country and culture, which demonstrate their artistic virtuosity and rich cultural heritage.|
With contemporary eyes and innate sophistication, the men re-imagine their traditional tjukurpa and ngura, and create mesmerising visual narratives which serve to protect their cultural ties for future generations.
The Tjala senior painters have been exhibited widely around Australia and internationally. Their important paintings have been collected by major institutions and collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, the Art Gallery of
South Australia, Adelaide, the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Queensland Art Gallery Brisbane, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth, and the Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne.
We pay respect in particular to Hector Burton for his significant artistic career with Alcaston.
