Gloria Petyarre is one of the most successful female indigenous artists from the Utopia region, 270kms northeast of Alice Springs. Like herself, her famous artist sisters, Kathleen, Nancy, Violet and Ada Bird were traditionally raised in their country of Aknangkere and have acquired great knowledge concerning their ancestors and Dreamings. Gloria Petyarre paints her Dreamings “Bush Medicine”, “Mountain Devil”, “Awelye” and “Atnangkere Growth”.

Gloria first gained national recognition as an Aboriginal artist working in Batik in the late 1970s and began painting on canvas in 1988. By 1991 she had her first solo exhibition in Sydney followed by an Interational solo exhibition in New York. In 1999 Gloria was awarded the prestigious Wynne Prize for her Bush Medicine painting “Leaves Blowing in the Wind”. Today Gloria Petyarre is represented in all the State Galleries of Australia as well as international public & private collections.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gloria Petyarre (b. 1946,[1] Atnangkere Soakage, Northern Territory) is an Australian Aboriginal artist from the Anmatyerre community, just north of Alice Springs. In 1999, the Australian magazine Art Collector called her “one of our most collectable indigenous artists”.[2]

Petyarre won the Wynne Prize in 1999 with Leaves, being the first Aboriginal person to win one of the Art Gallery of New South Wales‘s major prizes.[citation needed] She traveled to Ireland, England and India in 1990 as part of the Utopia – A picture story exhibition. She held her first solo exhibition in 1991. She is represented in Australian galleries such as the National Gallery of Australia. She is the niece of Emily Kngwarreye and the younger sister of Kathleen Petyarre, who are also artists.

Petyarre lived at the Utopia community after 1977, where she started batik painting, exhibiting in shows around Australia for ten years. She began work on the ‘Summer Project’ in 1989 which involved translating the batik paintings onto canvas. She was one of the founding members of this Utopia Women’s Batik Group. She paints several Dreamtime stories such as Pencil Yam, Bean, Emu and Mountain Devil Lizard and Small Brown Grass.[clarification needed] Her paintings – monochromatic or multi-colored – have well defined segments filled with curved lines. Her style is known for its abstract fields and bright colors.[1] Her work is represented in such collections as:

  • The National Gallery of Australia
  • The Art Gallery of New South Wales[3]
  • Allen, Allen and Hemsley
  • Victorian Museum
  • Museums and Art Gallery of the Northern Territories
  • Powerhouse Museum
  • Westpac Collection, New York
  • Gold Coast City Art Gallery
  • The Holmes a’ Court Collection
