ReDot Fine Art Gallery is especially honoured to present the exhibition Walkatjunanyi Inmaku (Painting Songs). The exhibition consists of eight astonishing large-scale paintings, executed by the senior artists of Tjungu Palya Arts. Located at Nyapari community about 100 km south of Uluru (Ayres Rock) in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, in the remote north west corner of South Australia, Tjungu Palya Arts is one of the most innovative art centres in Central Australia and is solely Aboriginal owned and governed.

An exhibition of this magnitude has never been seen before from Tjungu Palya Arts, with each painting being 200 x 300 cm in size. This larger format allows abundant space for sprawling and epic narratives, which depict large tracks of country and demonstrate fundamental cultural thinking. This scale also allows the artists the freedom to weave a spectacular amount of painterly detail into their work. The nuanced mark-making of each individual artist sets a unique and sophisticated tone within each artwork, and represents a strong spiritual connection, to both the act of painting and the process of narrating ones’ mythological beliefs.
