We are delighted to welcome you to the second Cooee Art MarketPlace Indigenous fine art auction for 2019. This dynamic multi-vendor auction features 99 lots. Our cover lot is a truly spectacular work by Emily Kame Kngwarreye entitled Kame-Summer Awelye, 1992 measuring 121 x 208 cm (Lot 25) is one of those exceptional paintings that were produced at Delmore Downs between November 1991 and February 1992. In an atmosphere of overwhelming humidity, accompanied by hot northerly winds, the anticipation of rain and on-going ceremonial activity enlivened the spiritual atmosphere amongst the female custodians at Utopia. In this painting, radiant fields of yellow and pink dots cluster and trace across the surface, varying in hue and density. This sumptuous work is alive and numinous, reflecting this heightened sense of spiritual awakening.
