Opening this evening: Johnny Warangkula Tjupurulla 1925 - 2001

Posted by Aboriginal Art Directory | 03.05.10

Gallery: Kate Owen Gallery

I am delighted to invite you to a rare exhibition of paintings by one of the founding masters of the Aboriginal art movement, Johnny Warangkula Tjupurulla (or Johnnny W, as he is affectionately known). The show opens from: 6 to 8pm Thursday 6th May, in our top floor gallery at 680 Darling Street, Rozelle and continues until Sunday May 30.

We are very fortunate to have obtained this outstanding collection of works from the latter part of Johnny's career. Some of the works have not been exhibited before, and as a group, they demonstrate the unbridled power and profound sense of story of this man's work - all in a confronting but exciting palette of black, white, red and yellow ochres.

Please click here to see a tantalising few of the works from the exhibition. The remainder of the paintings in the exhibition will be uploaded on 5th May, but if you live in Sydney, there is no substitute for seeing them in the flesh.

This show is one for the discerning collector and the passionate (but relatively wealthy) enthusiast alike. There is genius here - and an important part of Australian Art history.
But please don't be put off by that - all are welcome to visit the gallery and enjoy the raw power of these exciting works.

I hope to see you at the opening, or in the subsequent weeks of the exhibition,
kind regards,
