Boss Woman Yam/Emily Kame Kngawarreye,
TVU 27. Alalgura
Profusion, Emily Kngwarreye, 1993, 60" x 36"
wonderful example of Emily's middle period where dotting is used to
create muddy, often floral, passages of light and color. This is the
so called "dump dump" style where Emily used a shaving brush
cut down so that the bristles were uniformly round and even, and stamping
like a stencil brush against the canvas. The bristles would splay out
creating a floral ring of pigment almost translucent on the inside so
that one could see down through the layers of applied pigment creating
a feeling of light and depth and movement.
