Seven Sisters 2017
“In the Dreamtime seven sisters travelled between the milky way and earth.”
Kgukgi is a Wongutha woman whose work recently won the City of Kalgoorlie Boulder Art Prize. She sources her colours from nature including grounding ochres, earth and charcoal. She also uses contemporary acrylics including black and white to symbolise people having differences but being able to live together in peace and harmony.
Her artwork is featured in public buildings and private collections around the nation. Kgukgi’s art gives her a connection to her country and to her creator and spiritual ancestors. It is important for her to pass on the stories and skills to her children and grandchildren.
