Abie Loy Kemarre - Utopia Artist, Bush Hen Dreaming, Bush Medicine Leaf and Body Paint Designs

Abie Loy Kemarre

Abie Loy Kemarre developed her fine skills as an artist at an early age working closely with her famous grandmother Kathleen Petyarre. Kathleen taught Abie the techniques to create paintings where the delicate dotting created a moving surface of colour that highlighted the structure of her paintings. Abie concentrated on the Bush Hen Dreaming story that she had inherited from her grandfather.

Abie Loy Kemarre is related to a number of the famous Utopia artists including Gloria Petyarre, Ada Bird Petyarre and Emily Kngwarreye. Born in 1972, Abie Loy Kemarre belongs to the Eastern Anmatyerre language group and identifies with her traditional country at Iylenty or Mosquito Bore.

Abie Loy’s Bush Hen Dreaming paintings further evolved and she began work on bolder, more abstract style around motifs of Sandhills and Body Painting.  The expertise shown in her work brought her critical acclaim. Abie Loy Kemarre has been exhibiting for thirty years both within Australia and internationally.

Abie Loy Kemarre’s work is held in Australian public collections including National Gallery of Victoria, Art Gallery of South Australia, and Adelaide University Art Collection. She is represented in major private collections including Kelton Foundation, Levi-Kaplan Collection, Kerry Stokes Collection, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Commission Collection and Festival of Arts Foundation Collection. A selection of paintings by Abie Loy Kemarre is available from Japingka Gallery, where collectors can buy Aboriginal art online with certainty of quality, authenticity and provenance of art works. Aboriginal art status – Highly regarded artist.
