The paintings of Emily Kame Kngwarreye represent a unified world
of art that was realised through the production of some 3000 works
over a short, eight-year period.
Emily began painting at about 78 years of age and continued working
until her death. At the time Emily began making art, she was already
able to express the planarity of the canvas and the unique, moulded
space in the painting. Her art appears miraculous for its independently
derived, contemporary style of expression, which directly confronts
issues related to painting in our era.
