Some beautiful works by Emily Kame Kngwarreye and a review of exhibition 'Utopia: the Genius of Emily Kame Kngwarreye' by Scott Rothstein from Art Found Out.

Quoted from the post:

The galleries in The National Art Center, Tokyo are cavernous. The spaces are rectangular, interconnecting through occasional openings in the walls. In these all white, anonymous rooms, Emily Kame Kngwarreye (c.1910-1996) paintings are substantial. Even without a deep understanding of the cultural significance of the imagery, one cannot take in these works without feeling a sense of the profound. At a casual glance, the works appear similar to abstract explorations that are well known in the West and in some parts of Asia. But there is something more enlightened and informed about these paintings.
