Elizabeth Kunoth Kngwarray’s Yam Seeds and Flowers is an account of her Bush Yam story, caught in an infinite number of marks that seem almost magnetically organised across the painting’s field. She creates a subtle and dynamic sense of shift across the surface of her painting, evocative of the wind passing over and through the low-lying yam plants at ground level. – Chris Saines CNZM
