Artist Profile

Kudditji Kngwarreye

Born: c. 1928

Deceased: 2017

Language Group: Anmatyerre

Country: Alhalkere, Utopia Region, North East of Alice Springs

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas and Linen

Subjects: My Country, Ankerre (Emu Dreaming)

Kudditji is the brother of the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye. An Anmatyerre Elder and custodian of many important Dreaming stories, Kudditji Kngwarreye has a deserved reputation as an innovator and as a consummate colourist. He has been actively painting since 1986, around the same time as his renowned older sister, the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye, who transformed the Indigenous Fine Art Movement.

Kudditji's country, Alhalkere, is located in the remote Utopia region, some 250 kilometres north-east of Alice Springs. After a traditional upbringing and initiation, Kudditji quickly adapted to the western civilization by forging a career as a highly regarded Stockman. He also spent some time working in mineral and gold mines that were then operating in the region before adopting painting as his career.

Kudditji's paintings reflect a style he has worked on since 2003 when he began to explore a technique known as the dump dump, or dump dot, that was made famous by his sister Emily. Though the similarities between brother and sister are there, Kudditji's beautiful, soft and mesmerising landscapes of his country are unmistakably his own and have found wide acceptance and acclaim via very successful solo exhibitions, particularly in Australia and London. His paintings are romantic images of his country, accentuating the colour and form of the earth and landscape, the depth of the sky, and the shimmering summer heat, expressing his extensive knowledge and love of his country.
