Kudditji Kngwarreye Artist Profile

Kudditji Kngwarreye is a senior man from the Eastern Anmatyerre country of Alhalkere on the Utopia homelands, and was born around 1928, the younger brother of famous Aboriginal artist Emily Kame Kngwarreye. He has painted for over twenty five years, and Kudditji Kngwarreye paintings represent his traditional country around Boundary Bore, the country for which he is a custodian.

Significant throughout this country are the Emu Dreaming sites, where major men’s initiation ceremonies are performed. Emu Dreaming is one of Kudditji’s inherited ancestral totems, and is the inspiration for his art. Visual references to Emu Dreaming, and Men’s Ceremonial Dreamings from Boundary Bore, are always at the heart of artworks from Kudditji Kngwarreye. The artist is represented in major national and international collections and Kudditji has gained worldwide recognition for his powerful interpretations of his ancestral Dreamings.

Kudditji Kngwarreye is known for his large dynamic paintings, saturated with colour and paint, and his considerable creative output has helped expand the realm of traditional story-telling as expressed by Central Desert painters. Kudditji’s great paintings evoke lyrical images of his country using concentrated colour across the fom of the landscape. The artist uses densely applied paint and broad sweeps of colour to creates images of the intense skies of the desert rainy season and the extreme heat of high summer. A sense of immense space can be felt in the paintings.

Aboriginal art status – Highly collectable artist.
