Alcaston Gallery presents a solo exhibition by (APY) Lands artist, Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara and skilled ngangkari (traditional healer), Betty Kuntiwa Pumani entitled Kunpu Naranyi (Standing Strong).

Recognised as one of the most distinctive painters in Australian contemporary art working today, Pumani’s large scale visionary compositions depict her mother’s Country of Antara, a significant ceremonial site north-west of Mimili community in North West South Australia.
An artist of sophistication and restraint, Pumani continues to paint using her refined and distinctive palette of cobalt blues, vibrant reds and shimmering cream and grey – intense and saturated colours that have become synonymous with her practice – yet in this new body of work Pumani explores innovative compositional techniques, utilising complex motifs and tonal variations, signalling an exciting artistic progression.

Exhibition Opening Night: Thursday 19 May 4.30pm-7pm
