It’s been three decades in the making but now Greer Adams Fine Art has brought together collections from one of Australia's great Indigenous artists – Anatjari Tjakamarra (c.1938-1992).

The works, some which haven't been shown for more than 30 years, are from the private collection of the late Adelaide-based Duncan Kentish and have remained in private hands since their execution.

Tjakamarra was a leading figure in the Men’s Painting Room at Papunya in the early 1970s and by 1989, hiswork, Tingari Cycle Dreaming at Paratjakutti, 1988 had been acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NewYork under the category of ‘contemporary fine art’ and he also had a solo show at the prestigious John Weber Gallery, NY.

Both of these achievements were firsts for a Western Desert artist.

This exhibition celebrates a small collection of important works produced between 1984-1987 when the artist was living at Tjukurla a small remote outstation near Docker River in Western Australia. Each work is a unique and exceptional example of Tingari mythology, the visual language of Aboriginal Dreaming songlines from the Western Desert.

Given the extraordinary times we live in, interactive virtual tours of the exhibitions are available.

Private appointments are also available in Woollahra, Sydney.
