Artist Profile

Anna Petyarre was born c.1965 in the Utopia region Northern Territory, and is the daughter of the late Gloria Ngale, a highly respected Elder and artist.  Anna is also the niece of the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye, one of Australia’s best known artists.  Her Region is Alhalkere and her Language Group is Anmatyerre. 
 
She currently resides and paints at Mulga Bore, a community approximately 200 km from Alice Springs, and of late has travelled with her art.  She commenced painting as a child, surrounded by some of the most notable artists of the region. In 1996, she began her professional artistic career. Her content is wide, including Body Paint, Bush Tucker (Yam, Wildflower, Bush Potato) and Women’s Ceremony.  He style varies from bold linear using brightly coloured overlayed strokes (a legacy of her introduction to painting with Batik works), to small and intricate dotwork in subdued tones.
 
Anna is a traditional woman, participating in Women’s Business and further learning the dreaming stories of her family and her culture.  She is well educated and is a wonderful ambassador for her people and for the Art of Utopia.
 
Her artwork has been exhibited extensively throughout Australia and Internationally, and she has painted for important galleries in capital cities.

Artwork Description

This outstanding artwork depicts from a topographical view in fine detail, multi layered elements associated with Anna’s homelands of Atneltyeye, Utopia in Central Australia. The illustration is important visually and spiritually of country – sand hills, river beds and significant landmarks for ceremonies. This is often done in groups so that knowledge is passed down from older to younger women. Ceremonial sites are where the women gather for girls’ initiation and other cultural Law matters. The women sit around the waterholes, with the waterholes being full in the dry desert land. Due to this, there was plenty of bush tucker around for the women to eat during the sometimes very long period of time they camped out for Women’s Business.
