ReDot Fine Art Gallery presents works from Kaltjiti Arts, located in Fregon, a remote community approximately thirty kilometres south of the majestic Musgrave Ranges of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY Lands) in the far north west of South Australia. The nearest regional centre is Alice Springs, 500 km to the north. Uluru is 350 km west.
The show is the first ever solo shows for two matriarchal women of the community, Kathy Marinkga and Matjangka Norris, whom were both part of this early settlement. As soon as the young girls left school, they went to work at the ‘Ernabella-Fregon’ craft centre now known as Kaltjiti Arts. Over the years Kathy and Matjangka have continued to work in diverse mediums including making punu – wood carvings, tie dyeing T-shirts, painting on silk, screen prints, lino prints, etchings and painting, culminating in this collection of extraordinary works.
The contemporary, abstract interpretation of the landscape, environment and culture by Kathy Maringka and Matjangka Norris reflects their aboriginal heritage and response to traditional country and culture in the paintings exhibited in Katu munu Tjaru – Above and Below: of Sky and Land.
