Australian Indigenous art is one of the oldest ongoing traditions of art in the world. Aboriginal art depicts culture, tradition and stories from the past. It is a way that Aboriginal people share and continue their culture and their history.
The name Petyarre is synonymous with one of the greatest family art dynasties seen in Australia. A family made up of seven sisters who all rose to prominence through their art. This legacy is strongest through Kathleen Petyarre in her daughter Margaret Loy Pula and granddaughter Abie Loy Kemarre.
The works in this Aboriginal art exhibition show the generational stories and artistic styles that have been passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter.
Collectively the paintings reflect the ongoing culture and tradition of the Anmatyerre women of Utopia in Central Australia.
