Makinti Napanagka shares Kudditji’s palette in the sunshine

Sometimes I tend to favour certain colourway when sourcing my artworks. Recently it must have been yellow! Not a colour that I live with normally, I can sense a palpable happiness when I look at both Kudditji’s yellow work and this amazing vibrant yellow and violet painting by Makinti Napanangka. Hanging at Fanuli’s Cremorne showroom, the painting measures 1400 x 2200mm and was painted in the final year of Makinti’s life. It continues to convey the high energy, and spirited approach to art that Makinti always expressed through her work.

Kudditji adds a little bit of sunshine, on a winters day

Renown for his bold, heavily painted works, Kudditji’s latest work at Fanuli’s showroom in Cremorne is a slightly out of his normal sphere. Using a reduced palette of three shades of yellow, he has thinned down his paint before applying it to the canvas, giving it a translucent, almost gossamer thin quality. The size of the work (1500 x 2000), coupled with the intensity of a single colour, make a really confident, sunny, contemporary statement.
