Alcaston Gallery is proud to present Adrian Jurra Tjungurrayi’s first ever solo exhibition Yunala Tjukurrpa.

Tjungurrayi is an emerging contemporary Pintupi artist, whose paintings of meandering lines and geometric forms create compositions that oscillate on the canvas with visceral energy. 

Son of the renowned artist, the late Kumanytjayi Jurra Tjapaltjarri, a respected ceremonial and community leader of the Pintupi people and a master of Western Desert minimalism, Tjungurrayi has recently inherited custodianship of his family’s ancestral Country and the signature artistic style of his father, as is customary following his father’s passing.

Honouring generational continuity, Tjungurrayi has developed his own elegant articulation of Yulana, a desert flora with interlacing roots, and a significant site and tjukurrpa on Country. In his distinct visual language with inspired tonal shifts, Tjungurrayi’s paintings shimmer like a mirage, conjuring the salt lakes that characterise his Country, resulting in a highly sophisticated and contemporary aesthetic. 

Yunala Tjukurrpa will be on exhibition at the Alcaston Gallery Exhibition Space at 84 William Street, Melbourne / Naarm from 26 June – 12 July 2024.
