Untitled 171-19 – Sylvia Heffernan
Keringke Art Centre is situated in the community of Ltyentye Apurte (Santa Teresa). The community was named for the stand of bloodwood trees nearby, and Keringke Arts is named after an important and ancient place, Keringke Rockhole, that was formed when the ancestor Kangaroo was passing through this land.
Keringke Arts today produces a wide variety of art products, reflecting the colour, rhythm and ambience of the land that is home for the Eastern Arrernte artists. The work is prized for its unique style and authentic connection to an ancient living culture. The artists use pattern, colour, shape and design to create paintings that depict country, culture and self. Some designs may reflect sand and body paintings. Most commonly, in this contemporary form, the art is not attributed to any particular thing, but expresses the life world of the particular artist.
