Explications sur cette peinture Aborigène :

Emily Kame Kngwarreye is widely regarded as the most notable Indigenous Australian artist of recent times and the pre-eminent female artist of Australia’s desert region. The remarkable painterly quality and conceptual originality of her work extended her influence well beyond the previous reach of Aboriginal art. Emily was awarded the Australian Artists Creative Fellowship in 1992, participated in the Venice Biennale in 1997 and has had two solo retrospective exhibitions, most recently Utopia: The Genius of Emily Kngwarreye (Osaka, Tokyo and Canberra, 2008). Emily’s artworks are held in multiple prestigious public and private collections. 

Kame Flowers, an aerial depiction of Emily’s Country, Alhalkere, was inspired by fields of flowers covering large areas of rich red-soiled alluvial flood out plains in November 1991. Whilst the season came into bloom with the Kame flower of the atnulare yam for which Emily was named, so to was her ceremonial life, with the summer ceremonies soon to begin. 

Kame Flowers was painted in the month prior to the largescale epic work, Kame — Summer Awelye I, plate 21 in Delmore Gallery’s survey book Emily Kngwarreye Paintings (1998). During this intense period of painting, whilst continuing the defined small dots that characterise her earlier works, Emily increasingly began to create the gorgeous clouds of colour that became a cornerstone of her oeuvre.
